I'm new on this list serv, but I wanted extend my deepest sympathy to everyone who is involved in this tragedy. I live in New Orleans, and I was not directly affected by the slaughter. However, I cannot even fathom the pain that New Yorkers are experiencing. There are no words to describe this atrocity and loss of human life. I do not know how a human being could launch this umprovoked and unexpected attack. Everyone at my school and in my area is praying for all of the people that have been affected.
