It seems that most of the global problems, which are affecting us globally, nationally, regionally, locally, even personally, are based on religious intolerance or misunderstanding.  This site has it all, major and minor religions, even styles of belief.  But be aware, it presents all sides, and tries to do it equally.  A great resource!
I'm ready, take me.

The list grows.  Famous people, regular people.  Some were scared, some were heroes, most we'll never know about.  Our prayers are with those left behind.  Let me review the list. 

This in from Jan Teuber, a foreign student who lived in Grand Forks last year and graduated from Red River High School.

My Dear Friends,
    When hearing about that tragedy happening just a few days ago, I was more
than shocked. it was agonizing to see those pictures that are all over TV now.
at first I heard about it on the radio, sure that something like that could
not possibly be true - but I was wrong. it was a terrible evening and an even
more horrible night.
    Some people might think that this is an internal problem for the us, but
those are wrong. we are as involved over her in Europe. now we are showing our support for the American people, which puts us on some list as well (if we
haven't already been on there before). but that is secondary! It seems the most
important to me that the western countries and their supporters work together
now, thinking carefully about the consequences of their doing. at that point
    I'm proud that the first statement of solidarity from any European country
came from Berlin. Although that might not be happening enough, you should
appreciate these signs of unity. they're are base for further steps.
    But I think that you all are moved enough by now, and I don't want take too
much of your time, so I wish you the best and believe in the strength that
you praised that often. it might be a wound, but it is certainly not lethal, is
So, may God Bless America (and I do mean that).
Yours Sincerely,
