So glad to hear everyone in NY and DC are OK. I can truly say this is something I never thought I'd see in my lifetime.
The support and tributes shown by other countries has been truly touching, even comforting. I was particularly touched to learn this morning that for the first time in history, in lieu of the standard changing of the guards at Buckingham Palace, they are instead playing the American National Anthem.
God bless you all and keep you safe. God bless America (and her friends).
United we stand.

I didn't think I had an untouched emotion left in me but that tribute is unbelievable. I add my thanks to all our international friends for their concern; we are truly blessed in this most difficult of times.

quick question about ABT....I thought I'd read somewhere that the ABT dancers flew out on Monday. In anycase, doesn't it take more than 30hrs to drive from NY to CA (It's about 24hrs to southern Florida from NJ.
Does anyone know if they will dance...there was an article about art in CA, but no mention of ABT in San Diego.

Anyway, I hope that all the dancers' family and friends are safe, and that if any of the dancers do live in the WTC area, that they will have homes to return to. I can't imagine how helpless the dancers, especially the NYCB dancers in Parama, must feel so far away from NYC.
If anyone has more news about NYCB in Parma, please post. It sounds like the dancers will be spending more time in Italy than they planned. (My boss was supposed to fly to Germany on Lufthansa tomorrow, and so I was checking out the webpage. Most of the flights from Germany that were diverted to Canada actually flew BACK to Germany today. Doesn't bode well for getting back from Europe.
P.S. I have seen very neagtive remarks about the fact that the SFBallet is still going to have the gala in honor of one of its ballerinas (blanking out on her name). I fail to see why this is horrible....we have to move on at some point and the arts are a great way of coping and healing. Anyone care to comment?

Kyra Nichols' husband was scheduled to be on one of the flights that was hijacked and crashed but had injured his ankle jumping rope over the weekend and couldn't make the flight.

Flags at my school have been flown at halfmasts, and we observed a silence in respect for the dead.
Even I, so far removed from the tragedy have spent the past three days with the feeling of a closed hand clutching my stomach...
Once again, my prayerful support is with all those affected.
