In the wake of the terrorist bombing of New York's World Trade Center, I think the best course of action the U.S. should take is:

    Find the terrorists all over the world and eliminate them.  I fought 27 months in the South Pacific for freedom, and I sure don't want the terrorists to take our freedom away!

I am coping and dealing with this national tragedy (along with my family and friends) by ...

   By living our normal life of service to God in Jesus Christ and to let Him protect us and bless us.

Here is how I think my life will change going forward from this event:

   It will not change.  I will still support my country, and my church with taxes and tithes, for the church is the lifeline of this country.  As the home and church goes, so goes America.
