Subject: RE: Jane's Rainbow: for all needing support & comfort
I recall 9/11. Can't forget. Not the shock of it on TV. I get emails every year from a lot of people I put up at my house when the planes were grounded. I took them by the truckload (Ford F150 - yes, sitting in the truck bed too) back to my house from the Moncton Coliseum to shower and what have you and have a proper bite. As many as a dozen at a time. I put up several families overnight who had small children. So did a lot of my fellow Monctonians as well as people all across Atlantic Canada. Home cooked meals and sundries of all kinds were delivered to the stranded by Atlanic Canucks and, a few years later, George Bush actually touched down in NS and said thanks. I think he was on the ground for nearly an hour. I'd say more about that but... you know.
