NEWS: A MESSAGE FROM DAVID
all of you, nothing has prepared me for the horrors of the last twenty-four hours.
Like you, I never thought I would see anything like this in my lifetime. Our world
will never be the same. The streets are empty downtown except for the few who
live there, trancelike, going about their day to day lives, walking their dogs,
going to work, or just walking.
At some ghostly unseen signal everyone turns
his or her heads, crane their necks, looking to the patch of sky where, twenty-four
hours ago, the mountainous peaks of those two towers stood. The sunrise was seen
No obstruction. The likelihood of survivors is paltry.
Two friends of mine offered to give blood yesterday only to be told that it was
not necessary, as there weren't going to be enough survivors to warrant it.
A doctor, on his way to one of the makeshift morgues, suggested the victims would
number many thousands. The emergency services are listening for the ring of cell
phones or cries from the acres of rubble. When buildings of this size collapse,
the cinder blocks sometimes form small pockets of space in the crush.

has been declared a no-go section this morning. Lonely old sidewalk crazies, a
permanent fixture of this city, who yesterday were crying aloud "where are all
these people running to?'" are today asking, "where are all the people?"

no personal knowledge that acquaintances or friends may have been killed. My heart
goes out to those of you who do have family or friends missing.
I hope beyond
hope they are found. Life here will continue. New Yorkers are a resilient and
fast thinking people. In this way they really do resemble my own Londoners. They
came together quickly in massive community support and silent determination. There
has been no over-panicking. Over the next few days that calm may surely turn to

Kittens Found Alive In WTC Rubble NEW YORK, 2:40 p.m. CDT October 18, 2001 - The
World Trade Center recovery effort has brought plenty of sadness, and some extraordinary
tales of survival, including one of a very resourceful cat.
Beneath the rubble, in a
forgotten basement of what was once a restaurant, rescuers found the blast survivor,
curled up in a carton of napkins. The owner of the restaurant made the discovery
about two weeks after the disaster.
He immediately called rescuers. Dr. John
Charros said that the cat had given birth to three beautiful kittens. "Mom was
very emaciated, very thin and dehydrated. She's suffering from the flu. She's
still getting over that now, and had a little secondary bacterial infection. The
babies were in pretty good shape; they had been feeding well. I think mama weighed
in at five pounds when she was first brought in. She should probably weigh somewhere
between eight and 10 pounds," Charros said. Doctors immediately hospitalized the
animals and predict a full recovery. Mom has been christened "Hope." The babies
are being called "Freedom," "Amber" and "Flag." Shelter operators at Brooklyn's
Center for Animal Care and Control said that they've found homes for the cat and
kittens. They should be able to leave the hospital in November.
