           TODAY'S TOURBUS TOPIC: Terrorist Attack on the USA
You've probably heard that the United States of America was attacked
Tuesday by terrorists who flew hijacked commercial airliners into the
Pentagon in Washington DC, and the World Trade Center towers in New
York City.  Today's TOURBUS will tell you where to look on the web for
information about this horrific tragedy, and will give you a few ideas
about how you can help.
I turned on my television this morning just as the second Trade Center
tower was collapsing to the ground -- an unimaginable horror. As I
began writing this, a television report stated that only four or five
stories remained of one of the ruined 110-story twin towers. Thousands
of lives were lost, and tens of thousands will mourn them.
If you're tired of watching television reports where chirpy news
hounds ask soot-covered survivors "What was it like?" -- as if they
were covering a movie premiere -- then turn to the web for
information. Yahoo's Full Coverage provides dozens of links to major
news sources covering this story, as well as information on relief
efforts, and emergency contact numbers for those who are concerned
about loved ones at the scene.

American Airlines says those who wish to receive information about
relatives should call American's response number at 1-800-245-0999.
You can also find updated information from American at: 
The hotline for United Airlines is 1-800-932-8555, and you can find
more information online here: 
Morgan Stanley, the largest tenant in the former World Trade Center,
has set up an emergency phone number for employees and families to
call at 1-888-883-4391.  
You can also call The Office of Victims of Crime hotline at
1-800-331-0075 to to get more details about victims and survivors.
If you live in the USA, one of the most important things you can do is
to give blood.  Call your local hospital or the American Red Cross at
1-800-GIVELIFE to get details about when and where you can donate
blood.  Medical personnel who wish to donate their services should
contact their local American Red Cross office.  Anyone can access the
Red Cross website for information, or to make a donation of money.  
People with information about the terrorist attacks are being asked to
contact the FBI at 1-866-483-5137 or via its Web site:

Professional healthcare workers who wish to volunteer their services
can call 1-800-628-0193 to find out how they can help.
Even in the midst of a tragedy like this, I believe there is a God who
cares and mourns when men choose to do evil.  I will be praying for
the families of the victims, those involved in the rescue effort, and
that justice will be done.  I hope you will with join me.
That's all for now, see you next time.  --Bob Rankin
