I have a friend who works with me at Nestle here in Freehold.
His mother works in downtown Manhatten. He has heard
nothing from her since yesterday. She doesn't answer her
cell phone; he can't reach her at her northern New Jersey
residence. This was at 6:50 a.m. this morning as he was
arriving for work and I leaving. His father also lives somewhere
in the city, but apparently they've been in contact and will
speak again later this morning about their missing loved one.
Multipply this scene by about what they are now estimating
at 25,000 and you begin to get an idea of the trauma New York
City and its suburbs are experiencing now. Please, give blood
if you can.
