  This is just a short note. Since the attacks on September 11th, I have 
  been working 12.5 hour shifts. I can still get to my e-mail, but it 
  might take me some time to get back to you.

  I know what it is like to lose a loved one. If any of your have friends 
  or family members involved in these cowardly attacks, you have my 
  deepest sympathies.

  I still suggest trying to be positive in your life. That applies even 
  more during trying times. I volunteered to help watch over a local 
  mosque during my off hours. Due to some problems from some idiots during 
  the Gulf War, the local mosque had already taken steps to provide 24 
  hour security. My help was not needed. American Indians often know what 
  it is like to be considered as a outsider in the larger society. 
  Unfortunately, some people look at folks who do not look, think or 
  believe as they do, and they perceive these people as a threat. Even if 
  some Islamic extremists are involved in these terrorists acts, this does 
  not mean other followers of Islam are to blame. Just as the old 
  expression of "the only good Indian is a dead Indian" is so totally 
  wrong, blaming an entire religious group for these acts by a few 
  extremists is also wrong.

  I would suppose a subscriber to this list would probably not need to be 
  reminded of these things, but I have seen the need to mention it among 
  some of the people I have encountered recently.

  Be careful of spreading rumors. An e-mail from one Navy person to 
  another here in San Diego caused some significant concerns in the 
  community. One person was talking about a bomb threat they had heard 
  about on the radio. The e-mail was passed along to friends, who sent it 
  to other friends. Suddenly, local people thought the Navy knew of some 
  sort of major threat to an unknown site here in San Diego. In case you 
  did not know, San Diego has a significant Navy and Marine presense. 
  About five hours later, local TV interviewed the FBI. The FBI explained 
  that the rumor gained credence because the e-mail had a Navy return 
  address. Many people did not read the e-mail carefully. So, before you 
  start forwarding e-mails talking about threats, road closures, etc., be 
  sure of your source.
