GUEST,Den Posting IRA songs (60* d) RE: Posting IRA songs 14 Sep 01


I'd been watching this one too Spaw and was happy that for quite a while no one had taken the bait, we're learning. I commend you for your eloquence in dealing with Guest. In one of those strange twists of fate. My nephew and his girlfriend from Belfast were in New York when this tragedy occured. They were leaving that morning to come up to Canada to stay for a week with me before returning home to go back to university. We were really worried about them because we lost contact all that day. Their parents in Ireland were frantic with worry. They were thinking these kids had grown up their whole lives in Belfast unscathed and then this happens in New York of all places. Finally late Tuesday evening we had a call to say they were ok. They were on the bus on their way out of the city when they heard the explosion and saw the smoke. Their bus was diverted to somewhere in New Jersey and they have been there ever since. They are trying to get a flight home as soon as possible. This terrible event has touched many people further afield than the US. My brother told me that his neighbours brother is listed as missing. He worked in the trade centre.

Words are never enough in situations like this. I know first hand what it feels like to loose people I loved in similar violent acts. All I can say is that my thoughts and prayers go out to who ever needs them. Den
