A number of people have decided to forego business as usual because of recent terrorist attacks on USA which have caused untold loss of life and property and enormous grief.
This has been another "shot heard around world." The aftermath affects us all and will be far-reaching.
We must not let dastardly acts of a few terrorists stop us in our tracks. That is precisely what they wished to happen. They wanted their acts of terrorism to paralyze us to prove power of their actions.
We cannot close our eyes and pretend it didn't happen. It struck to very core of our souls and hearts. The news coverage of these events has been in-depth and all- encompassing. There are few people on face of this earth who cannot know of attack and collapse of two towers.
The loss of innocent lives is so great it cannot be estimated at this point.
Where there are natural disasters such as earthquakes, floods and hurricanes we provide all assistance possible and do our best to return things to normal as quickly as we can. We do not allow our business activities to come to a halt.
This is not because we are uncaring, indifferent or greedy. Continuing business as usual provides needed services and goods and work involved gives us a viable outlet for our grief and sorrow. The more one sits and thinks about recent terrorist attack and its aftermath, greater its impact on our thoughts and our economy.
