        I have many friends in the FDNY, NYPD, and DCFD (and Prince George's County)....I can't begin to fathom what they are going through.

          I'm not even sure what to make of any of this. My thoughts and prayers go out to everybody in the City of New York, especially to those who are presently trying to sort this all out.

          FDNY, DCFD, PGCFD, and all other involved brothers, this firefighter from Jersey is pulling for you.

              I think its time the United States took off the gloves dealing with terroists and terroist countries!

                I want to offer my prayers for the all public safety workers during this outrageous attack on this great nation. I offer my prayers and condolences to all that have and will suffer from this tragedy.

                I hope the President finds the insane government who perpetrated this act or are allowing these people to operate out of their nation. This is an act of war and should be treated as such.

                  I'd like to lend my voice to the growing chorus here. My thoughts and prayers (literally...I'm going out now to church) are with the victims, friends, and families of those lost in these cowardly attacks.

                  Also - to my brothers and sisters in FDNY and DCFD - I'll keep a good thought for your safety, knowing that you will do the anonymous, heroic things that are your heritage and pride.

                  God bless America.

                    I cannot even begin to imagine what things must be like right now. I am sure many of us cannot believe our eyes as we watch the tragedy unfold. My thoughts and prayers go out to everyone involved.

                    May god bless you all.
