I don’t know if it’s possible to express the soul-wrenching horror that I feel over the events that have occurred this morning — both towers of the World Trade Center down, attacks at the Pentagon and State Department, and a plane down near Pittsburg. And we don’t yet know if there is more to come.
Thankfully, my aunt and her family who live in NYC were upstate at the time of the attacks. My stepfather is in Boston. Most likely, the disruption to airline schedules will cause him to miss my wedding.
There is no reliable estimate of casualties yet, but any is too many.
