What a way to end the day.....

Ironically, the same day you post this thread, Ouizy, I got the following letter left on my front door tonite when I came home from work....not every day you get a letter like this

"To Our Residents:

On February 6, 2003, the Federal Bureau of Investigation's Counter-Terrorism Division raised the national; terrorism threat level to "orange" indicating a "high risk of terrorist attacks". (For your information: Alert Condition Levels are as follows: Green: Low; Blue: Guarded, Yellow: Elevated, Orange: High, Red: Severe.)
Attorney General John Ashcroft described the non-specific threat in this manner: "Recent intelligence reports suggest that al Qaeda leaders have emphasized planning for attacks on apartment buildings, hotels and other soft or lightly secured targets in the United States."
At this time, we want to emphasize that this is not a specific threat against any particular apartment building, nor is there a particular time frame or location identified. Please keep abreast of local and national news for emergency information and updates.
Whether the threat is one of terrorism or other criminal activity, it is important that you observe your surroundings and report any and all suspicious, threatening and unusual activities and persons to the police and/or the FBI. After you have notified the appropriate authorities, you should then contact your leasing office or, if available in your community, your courtesy patrol service, to notify them of both the nature of the activity observed and of your report to the local authorities.
Remember that terrorism and other violence know no racial, ethnic or religious bounds. Our country's diversity is both its greatest strength and its most precious asset. Our focus in these times must be on activities and conduct and not on racial, ethnic or religious factors. Lincoln Property Company is committed to fair housing for all people and attempts by any resident to target specific racial, ethnic and/or religious groups for mistreatment will be responded to with all appropriate action available under the law.
Should you wish additional information about the communication, please visit the FBI website at www.fbi.gov. To locate your local FBI field office, once at the FBI homepage, click on the "About Us" and then the "Field Offices" links. It is also a good idea to adopt a "Family Disaster Plan" in the event of an emergency. The Federal Emergency Management Agency has developed a model plan that might be of use and can be accessed at www.fema.gove/pte/famplan.htm.
Once again, the FBI has requested that we stress that the threat is purely general and non-specific. We will, of course, provide you with any additional credible information we receive including, any information that the threat has been declared specific by the FBI."

ouizy, I can totally sympathize with you.

The only consolation that I TRY to give myself is, "They hit us once, they couldn't possibly hit NY again?????"

But I guess we should never underestimate those terrible people.

Is that kind of thing that you recieved ABEL, common? Are many households and workplaces etc handing out that sort of thing? The fear in New York must be terrible. I couldn't imagine what it must be like to have my sense of security threatened like that. But I would think Texas is not a huge target? I mean, we can never tell what these idiots are thinking or where they think they may get to you all again, but it begs the question, where can you go to feel safe? Is anywhere safe?
We all got a similar thing to that notice distributed here in Aus, and at first I kinda smirked at the ads on tv announcing it was coming in the mail. I thought "We aren't a target! Why would they come here?" And while I think we are fairly safe, everyone probably has that view until someone gives you a very real reason to think otherwise - like NY.

well Angela, I've never gotten a letter like this, I don't think I even got one like this following Sept. 11th, and no they're not common...Dallas is a big city...and like you said, we don't know what these idiots are thinking...I know this letter is just a precaution, as it says, but it makes you realize that our whole world has changed since Sept. 11th, it's not just NYC...it's everywhere in fact, NYC may be one of the safer places, since they have stepped up security and everyone's more alert there after Sept. 11th...people in other cities and towns are thinking "it can't happen here". Terrorists don't see it that way

I'm not going to be afraid and change the way I live because of it though. You just gotta go on cuz like others have said, if you don't, then they've won.
