As one of those email friends you've never met, I want to send a message of 
solidarity and support to you and your family. I was born in New York, but 
grew up out west in California. After college, I went to live in the City as 
a young man, got a little garden going behind a youth hostel off 88th near 
Central Park, and almost took a job at a little magazine just across the 
street from the World Trade Center. I remember how massive and solid those 
two towers seemed, casting their long long shadows. Today, I watched in 
horror and disbelief as they fell. I know you've dedicated yourself to 
building community and justice and a better earth through community gardens. 
That's what will make a lasting difference in the world, not crashing 
airliners into buildings. I'm very relieved that you and your family weren't 
hurt, and we all down here will hold you in the light as you work to heal and 

Thanks, too, for telling us what you saw. More than any TV coverage, your 
honesty got through to me. You are 100% right, we are in for interesting 
times. It's essential that we keep hope alive, as Dr. King used to say, but 
some days surely are darker than others.
