    Early in the morning they came without warning
    planes from the skies
    terrorizing
    destroying
    banzai
    suicide run
    hundreds killed
    the worst act of aggression in history
    we said never again will this happen
    yet strangely enough
    Early in the morning
    planes from the skies
    terrorizing
    destroying
    banzai
    suicide run
    thousands killed
    but this time
    using our own planes
    inhabited by our own people
    robbed of their lives
    both in the air
    and on the ground
    the writing is on the wall
    signs of the times
    yet reminds us
    that we don't have much time

    Let us continue to pray for our country and the world.

    Bishop has spoken

    ..."ifs"

    ...if only we would have known
    if only would could have done
    this or that...
    if...
    if...
    life's unpredictability and
    human reation...

    as a nervous federal employee
    i now sit at home sick to the stomach
    about being housed in a "target"...
    my heart pounding..."God, please calm me"...

    just last week...the feds
    raided a "front" techie biz
    for plotting terrorist activities...
    YEAH...here, in north dallas!

    my hermit feelings resurface
    as i want to run and escape
    the incompetentcies of elected
    officials who take their diplomatic
    appointment to their favorite country
    more serious than the strategic
    safety of a nation...of people...

    today...internal sick from panic
    i pray for a nation...for people
    devestated...depressed...dying...
    i pray...i pray

    if i pray...i know, GOD will hear...

    thanks B~

    I know the feeling...I used to work at Sears Tower, and we were always getting threats and put on alert. It's scary because one day the threat may turn out to be real.
