...don't be terrified

Hi. Snow flurries abound this morning in Chester County, PA. My heart goes out to AA and UD, who are suffering through 80 degree temperatures and winds strong enough to ruffle Palm Trees. It must be terrifying! On this day in 2004, the bombing of a Super ferry by Abu Sayyaf in the Philippines' worst terrorist attack killed 116 people. Claire De La Fuente had yet to record "Something In Your Eyes," but if she had, the 'something' would have been many tears. This week, an article in the Washington Post was discussing the 9/11 terrorist attacks. The American Institute of Architects wants an independent investigation. A janitor at the World Trade Center gave a very concise, detailed run down of the morning of 9/11, stating that an explosion occurred underneath he and 14 other people that was strong enough to knock them off of their feet. This was prior to the first plane hitting the tower. William Rodriguez is the name of the man and his re-telling of the day is pretty amazing. I am off to brave retail interior design today, so wish me luck.
