Deb, I did not know this was your story. You answered a call. Thank you for your service.

Glad to hear the details of this story Debs. That connection between people is a great feeling. I remember thinking in those days that this was the kind of event the Net was made for. Of course, the Net is Us.

Reading the accounts of the days after 9/11 remind me of the sense of community in San Francisco after the Loma Prieta earthquake. People gave of themselves, selflessly.

You never know what people will do in a moment of crisis. Despite all the bile and rancor of our age, if you lived through the aftermath of those crises, you know hope survives.

Beautifully put Brian.

Heather/Elisa - thanks for your comments. The Net is indeed Us. I often wonder what it would have been like has social web been more pervasive back then. Of course cell phones were knocked out so we would have been reliant on wifi only.
