My cousin Elizabeth is still missing after the attack in New York. I don't know which building or floor she worked on, or who her employer is, but she was an accountant at the WTC. Her mom is going nuts. She is 45 years old and has two kids, and a large extended family. I am worried sick. Here is a pic taken last December in Connecticut: [img]http://wsphotofews.excite.com/034/Yb/UC/sI/Vr24741.jpg[/img]

Gus, she's in my prayers. If its any consolation, phone service is a mess in Manhattan, cell phones are useless, and transportation in and out of the city is at a minimum. My sister works about 10 blocks away from the WTC and it took her the better part of the day to get a call through to me to let me know she was ok. I just pray your cousin is having similar trouble finding a phone thats working.

My prayers and best wishs go out to Elizabeth, you and your family as well as the families of those still missing, the missing and those less fortunite. May god bless us all and save us from that this world has become. As for those MONSTERS that plan and executed this plan, may justice be swift. A friend from another board sent me this and I would like to share This email has already made it through several hearts. Please cut and paste and send it on to your friends. We are a Christian nation and the time is now to stand on our faith and answer the call to service. The following prayer is offered for your use. Please modify it to fit your own personal religious beliefs. Almighty God, You have given us this good land as our heritage. Unite us as one people in spite of our coming from many nations with many different languages and religions. We pray for the victims of the terrorism unfolding on this day. We pray for those who will provide rescue and rehabilitation to them. We pray for wisdom for our leaders and other world leaders as they respond to these savage attacks. We pray that you would guide the nations of the world into ways of justice and truth, and establish among them that peace which is the fruit of righteousness. We pray that you would turn the hearts of those who believe violence is the way to solve differences. We acknowledge our own anger and ask you to hear our thoughts of retaliation and revenge while trusting you to bring justice to bear and to lead us all into the way of peace. As we pray in your most holy name. Amen. Karsten

My dad just called to tell me Liz has turned up in a hospital somewhere in NYC. She has a bad concussion(sp?) and cuts on her head and arms. She was on the 20th floor and was able to escape just before the first tower collapsed. She was wandering around incoherently and was helped by a group of civilians. They said she had no ID (purse still in the bldg) and did not know where she was or what had happened. Apparently a piece of debris hit her on the head as she was running away. They got her to the hospital but it took several hours. Sometime this evening she started coming around and called my aunt. Guys, tears are streaming down my face as I type this. THANK YOU FOR YOUR THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS!!!!! Liz's prognosis is good at this time and she will likely be released tomorrow or the next day. THANK GOD!!!!! Let's now redirect our prayers to the others who were not as fortunate as my family. I truly know what they are going through. I'm going to take a drive up to Connecticut this weekend and hug her for a day or two. We were very close as kids and I was just about out of my mind until dad called. Make sure you spend as much time as possible with those you love. You never know when they will be gone. Thanks again!!!! Gus

I am crying also Gus, that is great news. My sister was standing jsut outside as the first building came down, seems the falling debris and rush of air stripped her naked (broke hercollarbone and cut her up pretty bad). Didn't some suit that found her stripped himself down to his underwear and gave her his suit by the time she got to the hospital she found she still had his wallet and keys in the pockets. Needless to say, this hero is going to get a dinner invatation for him and his family, and treated like royalty by me and mine. My sister made it to St. Vincents where my wife was working (she did her residency there and had the kids there visiting and was pressed into service), my sister found my wife and all was pretty OK with my tiny little section of the world. My wife is reporting that there is a terrible shortage of blood, the blood that is being given right now is going to take a while yet to get into the system, so keep giving. If you are in St. Vincents and see a drop-dead gorgeous blond, blue eyed doctor, tell her I love her and give her a friendly kiss for me.
