Dave Humphrey of New Jersey sent these photos to the Herald.
My new view of Manhattan from my office
building, very very sad.
Dave said of the second photo,
"But this next one made us smile. It's a picture my girlfriend and I sneaked
of a couple young girls on Staten Island Saturday, when we were walking the
dogs to the park. Believe me, everybody was honking for them."
Take care there in West Virginia, and know we're getting back to business up here...Dave Humphrey
Over the past few days horrific things have happened to the
United States and it is scary to think it is actually happening. Some say
it is like a scene from a movie. It is not and what to do frightens me.
have mixed feelings about retaliation, as well as many other Americans. In
anger I think we should attack them and seek revenge for the innocent that
have died in their attack on us.
Then in fear of a war I think we should
not. It is a constant battle inside myself deciding how I feel. We never
imagined a terrorist attack happening on American soil and now we face
decisions that will change our lives forever.
What will be done is in the
hands of our president and I pray that God will be with him in the decision
he makes for our nation and our people. I pray for all Americans that we
stand together in this troubled time... Amanda Richards
I would like to take a minute to say how much the Hur Herald is appreciated to those who are away from Calhoun and would
keep in touch.
Currently my husband and I are at Fort Campbell, Kentucky. This is a stressful time on us and everyone in the military who are
waiting go to go war. I hope everyone at home knows how much we love West Virginia and are proud to fight for our
freedom...SSGT. Randall Parsons and Family 101st Airborne Division
First, I would like to say that I enjoy reading the Hur Herald and enjoy
all the interesting topics that appear in it.
I don't know what I can say about the attack without sounding completely
naive and somewhat stupid. But, I will have a go at it anyway.
I will never be free of the images I saw on TV Tuesday the 11th. I
cannot get over the fact that someone can live with themselves after
committing such a horrific thing.
I am a Mother and I cannot imagine of all the children, small or
big, that have learned that their Mommy or Daddy will never get home. Never
be able to read that bedtime story, never be able to watch a ball game or
play in the park again. It is obvious to me, that this Bin Laden has no
clue about the love of family, of God, friends, co-workers etc. No clue
about the love of life and all the things in it. Evidently, his own life
must be in body and a thread of brains only.
I don't know exactly how I would take over this situation. I have a lot
of things I would want to say and do. But, do to the fact that I do not
have "President" in front of my name, it is pretty much out of my control.
I do know that our great nation needs to come together and stand up for
each other. Not only now, but from now on. The only way to stay together is
to see beyond the things we don't always agree with, perhaps someone's
political views, or their religion or whatever it may be, and look inside and
realize that we are all equal and we all deserve the right to be free and
safe in this country. We can win this "war", if we can be brave enough to stand
together. GOD BLESS EVERYONE...Kathy Robinson
