> What's really scary though is that now the world seems to be on the brink of war....just about every country has mobalized and raised defenses in one way or another. And though the superpowers of the world aren't pitted against each other, with so much militarization around the globe, it's scary to think of what might happen if something went wrong or if there was an 'accident'. Just by the sheer power that can be unleashed at a moments notice in the modern world, we do indeed have to power of total annahilation. We have witnessed that what can take years to build can be destoyed in minutes...hopefully we shall not witness it again.
> And even though I'm not sure how much it will help, I will pray. I will pray for the estimated 10000 who have died today, and hope they have found peace. I will pray for their families and friends, and hope they can find the strength within themselves to move on with life. And I will pray for the entire world as well: may we find the strength to build again what we have lost. For even in a tragety such as this, there is great hope. From the dust and debris, we can rebuild even better. And with so many countries of the world now allied against these incredibly horrid acts, hopefully there may come a time not where we build strong enough to withstand such attacks, but so that there will never be a need.

I would just like to say how refreshing it is to find a message like this on the board...just today, I got an email from CoffeeCup Software (for some reason, I'm on their mailing list) claiming that the company would call for the "destruction and annihilation" of whichever country is responsible for this atrocity. It is just so nice to see so many opinions from people like Kaz, Jezzika and all the other people here, not baying for blood but instead wanting to rebuild.
