victims aid organizations below. We've also included a patriotic
idea that's being passed around the net.

A PATRIOTIC IDEA
The following message is being passed around on the net:
On Monday, the New York Stock Exchange and the NASDAQ are going to reopen.
There is great uncertainty in the financial markets right now. The
institutional investors, the arbitrageurs, the short sellers and others
will be covering their collective you know whats -- which could well
drive the markets lower and play right into the hands of the terrorists
who thrive on instability.
But what if individual Americans stepped in as buyers on Monday. What if
every red blooded American who cares deeply about the need for the United
States to weather this storm and remain a beacon of hope in a tough world,
bought a few shares of their favorite stock on Monday. 50 million Americans
buying 20 shares of the stock of their choice would result in a billion
share push to the plus side. And it would signal the world that we will
not be cowed and we will not lose faith in our institutions.
If you like this idea, pass it on.
