09-10-2002, 06:58 PM
It is now Sept 11th in my time zone, and we in the U.K. are thinking of and praying for all the victims and families of those involved in the 9/11 incidents.
We will never ever forget that tragic time which had such awful consequences, and I would like to extend my heartfelt prayers and thoughts to all American citizens on this day.

May God bless America!!!!And keep you all safe today and always.

Thanks Martino smile.gif

Though our countries may not agree on many issues, at least we can express our opinion's freely amongst each other. graemlins/thumbsup.gif

Thank you for your kind words and prayers.

Martin, the unwavering support of the UK throughout this entire ordeal, especially considering that many of your own citizens were lost in the events of 9/11/01, has not gone unnoticed by the average US citizen.

At a time when so many of our so-called allies have turned their backs on us, it's always reassuring to know who your true friends are.

Thank you so much for your words and support Martin. We really do appreciate it.

Thanks Martin and ditto to what Ed said. It is greatly appreciated.

Thanks Martin. Your kind words mean so much and your support means that much more.

Thanks Martin - I concur with Ed and Melanie.

Thanks Martin, I know tomorrow will be a hard day for most Americans and it's nice to have your support and prayers.

May God Bless America!

Thank you Martin. Speaking for myself, I am truly dreading tomorrow and have been trying to put it from my mind for a couple of weeks now. Your words and thoughts are very comforting.

Thanks Martin. I am always amazed at how loyal and honorable the UK citizens are. I actually wondered if we were going to have to ask Tony Blair to let us help in the military action after 9/11. His reaction was very strong! It was comforting to know we had a true friend. Thank you.

Thanks Martin. Your prayers are appreciated and needed.

I will be facing almost 180 young teens tomorrow in my 6 classes. I am concerned about saying the right things to them. It started today with a little boy talking about the hijackers using box cutters.

I am sure I am not the only teacher still up tonight worrying about this. :(

Thank you for the wonderful words Martin!

Thank you for those kind words Martin! It means a lot to all of us!

It's nearly midday UK time which makes it almost 7am EST. I'm at work in front of a TV and we're watching the sun come up over New York City. It looks so peaceful. But there's something missing. And it's still so hard to comprehend.

I just want to add to what Martin said. We're sharing your grief with you right now. I hope that makes it just a bit easier to deal with, knowing we're there with you.

09-11-2002, 07:01 AM
Thanks Martin and Dawn!!

09-11-2002, 08:40 AM
Martin and Dawn - thanks. It does mean a lot to hear your words of comfort. It is very reassuring to know that the US is not alone and we have friends and allies in the world.

Presently watching service at St. Paul's Cathedral and Ground Zero, where the Pipes being played brought a lump to my throat. graemlins/shakehead.gif

Thank you Martino! smile.gif

I mentioned a similar sentiment in another thread a moment ago, but to me this points out why countries like ours need to be able to keep our differences in perspective. Although the U.S. is the sole remaining "Superpower" clearly we cannot lead by ourselves. If we are going to use the moral advantage that things like 9-11 bestow upon us, we must reach out to countries like England, with whom we have so much in common, and work together to make the entire world, not just our little patch of it, a safe place for all.

A heartfelt thank you from America to our cousins across the pond. The touching tributes and words of support from the U.K. today and during the past year have touched all our hearts. This horror touched not just our own continent but reached around the world. It is not our size that gives us strength, but the knowledge that we are not standing alone.

I would like to add to the sentiment of Dawn and Martin. The playing of the Star Spangled Banner and God Save the Queen in St Paul's were truly moving, as was Desmond Tutu's address; though nothing could be as touching as the pictures from ground zero.

This is a proud day for America as well as one of mourning. May our nations stand together come what may.

And in the simple words of one of our country's most famous exports. Please remember, whatever may arise:

All You Need is Love.

Thanks to all of you. We appreciate the support of other countries.

I agree Beth. God Bless each and every country.

Thank you! It's good to have the support of people from other parts of the world.
