For several years it has been our priviledge to bring you daily images from the U.P. of Michigan. This week, however, the images which linger in our minds are those of a nation under attack. In our prayers, our thoughts, our actions... we stand together with all Americans to support and defend the way of life with which we have been blessed.

Long may it wave

Thanks Charlie!

Here's another message, that I found to be outstanding...I get the Electric Scotland ezine.. and here is the message and the link:

"Our email list was not intended for this but such was my shock and horror at
the attack on America that to show our support for our American friends I
have put together a page on Electric Scotland to show you all how Britain
has paid tribute to our American cousins today.

You can see this at

Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.


It's another awesome tribute.

excerpt from Tennyson's Ulysses:

Death closes all: but something ere the end
Some work of noble note, may yet be done,
Not unbecoming men that strove with Gods,
The lights begin to twinkle from the rocks;
The long day wanes; the slow moon climbs: the deep
Moans round with many voices. Come, my friends,
'Tis not too late to seek a newer world.
Push off, and sitting well in order smite
The sounding furrows; for my purpose holds
To sail beyond the sunset, and the baths
Of all the western stars, until I die.
It may be that the gulfs will wash us down:
It may be we shall touch the Happy Isles,
And see the great Achilles, whom we knew.

Tho' much is taken, much abides; and tho'
We are not now that strength which in old days
Moved earth and heaven; that which we are, we are;

One equal temper of heroic hearts,
Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.

This has been copied from Fridays On-Line Daily Mining Gazette
For those wondering how to properly display the flag, here are a few tips:
• U.S. Code outlines the proper procedure for displaying the flag at half-mast or half-staff during a period of mourning.
“The flag, when flown at half-staff, should be first hoisted to the peak for an instant and then lowered to the half-staff position,” the code states. “The flag should be again raised to the peak before it is lowered for the day.”
• Flags can be displayed between sunrise and sunset. The flag should be taken down at night unless it is properly illuminated. Unless the flag is deemed all-weather, it should be taken down during inclement weather.
• The American flag should be above all state and organizational flags, even at half-staff. If the flag is being displayed with flags of other nations, it should be displayed at the same height and goes to its own right.

I wish you would ask the elders at Still Waters what they think about what has happened and what they think about how we should respond. I have no parents or grandparents to talk to about this and would be honored to hear what they have to say. Thanks.

You can also donate directly over the web. If you go to they have got direct links to nearly all the above listed donation sites, as well as the United Nations fund and their own Neediest Cases fund. You can donate $$$ (any amount) in about 30 seconds.

ps ... it was nice to see the shot of Lake Linden. (you can almost see what special the Dairyland is offering).

pps .... When the front page of the New York Times comes up, look down the right hand side to the section titled "Resource Navigator." Click on "Relief Efforts," and the whole list, with links, comes up. Once there, it's easy to click and donate, but I should warn you ... the NYTs site is running somewhat slow right now, due to all the info it is including on the site. But a few extra minutes is nothing; at least we've got our lives and the time to sit there and do it.

wow, I hadn't seen that picture of the firemen and the flag. Next to the picture that was used for the Iwo Jima memorial it is really poignant. I live only 25 miles from the Pentagon, and I know of at least one of my HHS classmates who is even closer, but I haven't seen it yet. I plan to go by there later this week to see it and realize it isn't 'made for tv'. In this huge country of ours that still stays so peaceful for most of us, especially those in the UP, we need somehow to connect and at the same time realize that the beauty of this country is in our strength in moving forward. My thanks to Pasty cam for the wonderful pictures and words of the past week.
