Email Text:Hey Chad I trully appreciate your concern. I do not have any ill feelings toward you. I really cannot begin to explain what happened with our friendhip. Anyway my family and i are okay. my aunt works down the street from the towers; we were concerned about her. She made it home okay after being stuck downtown for hours. Again, thank you for being concerned and I will talk to you again soon.

Nicole, I know we haven't talked to each other in a long time; but I just realized that you may have friends or family in New York. And I'm writing in the hope that they weren't harmed by the horrible events this week. A thing like this makes me realize what's truly important in life, and has lead me to contact everyone I've known and cared about in my life whose lives may have been directly affected by these awful terrorist acts (though we have all no doubt been affected). Whatever gap may exist between us is not important to me now.
It seems everyone has some connection to the catastrophe. We have a family friend who works across the street from the Twin Towers and narrowly escaped the carnage. And I can't count the number of times I've heard of people who know people close to me who were in Manhattan or on those airplanes Tuesday.
I don't know what your feelings are about me. But please respond--I won't know what to think if you don't! I certainly hope you yourself weren't in New York on Tuesday for I know you visit there occasionally. I truly hope everything is ok with you, your family and loved ones.
