Today has been a long day to say the least. I woke up this morning in a daze due to lack of sleep, and after I tuned my TV to CNN Headline News as I normally do before stepping into the shower I felt like I was having a bad dream. Must have been an Independence Day induced dream or something. Everywhere is on heightened alert, even my local Home Depot received a bomb threat today. It is so refreshing to see the support our population has contributed in terms of blood donations, medical help, and strangers offering persons stranded away from home a place to stay for the night, or until they are able to get back home to their familes and loved ones. An exhausting day, but worth noting in my own personal Web space. Internet commerce ground to a halt as far as I saw, with sparse message boards and few visitors to my sporting goods site. What does tomorrow hold?
