My country is under attack by terrorists.

The World Trade Center in New York is gone. Airliners crashed into each tower. Part of the Pentagon has collapsed; another plane crashed there. One of the planes that hit the World Trade Center was from Boston. Two other planes have also crashed, one of which was from Boston. Planes all over the United States are grounded. International flights are being diverted to Canada. The border with Mexico is closed. Bridges and tunnels into and out of New York are closed. The U.S. stock exchanges are closed. The CDC has been evacuated and bioterrorism teams are assembling. Israeli missions all over the world are being shut down and evacuated. The State Department is being evacuated. Downtown Manattan, as far north as Rockefeller Center, is being evacuated. The Sears Tower in Chicago is being evacuated. The UN, in New York City is being evacuated.

I can't get CBS, ABC, or MSNBC online. CNN has a barebones site up. We think that their servers were in the World Trade Center.

"Both planes that crashed into the World Trade Center Towers in NYC originated from Boston. The flights have been tentatively identified as American Airlines Flight 11 and United Flight 175."

Today is the anniversary of the Camp David Peace Accords. A plane crashed there, too.

The White House has been evacuated.

It's hard to get anything from the Internet.

This is a disaster. I don't think anyone understands exactly what this means for us as a nation.

Nothing is ever going to be the same.
