According to Dean Donald Nieman, the College of Arts and Sciences hopes to sponsor a series of teach-ins, tentatively titled "Coming to Terms With the Tragedy An Open Discussion". The teach-in convenes faculty and students to discuss the events of the past week. "The purpose is not to talk at the students but to talk with the students," Nieman said. Because of the strain on their schedules, faculty may direct the meetings as they choose. History and political science professors plan to attend several gatherings to explain the historic and political aspects of the terrorists' actions. "Perhaps the faculty will help the students to place this event in a larger historic and political context, and hopefully, that will help everyone to cope," Nieman said. In addition, clinical psychologists may be available to explain the key differences between individual and collective grief as well U. organizes a memorial at University Hall lawn today.

Finalized plans will be announced at the memorial service, but as of press time, the meetings were scheduled to begin at 1 p.m. They will be held in various residence halls.

Associate professor and psychologist Craig Vickio said he and others will be there for all students who need to talk. "National trauma can be closely paralleled to personal trauma," Vickio said. "One of the common Issues is the struggle with acceptance. After the death of a close family member, many simply do not believe it. The same is true in this case. Many people walk around with a kind of surrealistic feeling, not fiilly believing it." Vickio said people count on the predictability of life.

PAGE 7 Falcon football stays grounded bynickhurm THE BG NEWS For the first time in its 82-year history, the Bowling Green football team will not play a scheduled regular season game. The news came late yesterday in a statement by BG Athletic Director Paul Krebs. "Due to the many unanswered logistical questions regarding safe and timely air travel this weekend and the fact the President of the United States of America has declared Friday as a National Day of Prayer and Remembrance, we feel it is in the best interests of our institution to postpone our participation in this weekend's football game at South Carolina," Krebs stated in a formal "I will never regret not playing the game. I may have regretted playing the game." announcement Krebs notified Mike McGee, the Athletic Director of South Carolina at 11:15 a.m. with the decision not to play. Krebs and BG football coach Urban Meyer said they had intended to play the game, but after considering possible travel troubles the team could face, they chose to postpone. "There was no assurance of when we could get a plane," Krebs said. "The plane that was scheduled to fly us actually has Due to extremely heavy volume of calls and website hits, you may aot gat through Immediately.

Michael Uhmkuhle BG News Public meeting addresses railroad repairs by Michael Ksenyak THE 8G NEKS Wood County Commissioners are looking for ways to obtain money to fix dangerous railroad crossings. The issues of working on these crossings and funding for the maintenance were discussed in a public meeting on Friday, Sept. 7. Railroad companies have to raise the tracks and perform maintenance routinely to make sure the railroads are operating at peak performance and safety. "The rail is pulled out and new stone is put under it then when the track is laid back down it Is much higher," said Alvie Perkins, Wood County Commissioner. This nmrp«increases the grade of approach ramps. "After about 20 to 40 years of this, the ramp can become very high." "In the meeting we decided to have townships evaluate the railroads and determine which ones are the worst case scenarios," said Andrew S. Kalmar, county administrator. "It seems that the rules for maintaining the roads after the railroads are raised are loosely enforced on the county roads.'' Kalmar said that the county should have sufficient information in 60 days to schedule another meeting and make more decisions about what the next steps should be. "The communication hptwppn thp railmah pnoinppp; and the county offices needs to be improved forwood County," said Kalmar. "A neighboring county, Seneca County, has a good relationship with their railroad engineers. We need to look at them and find out how they achieved this." Kalmar said that State Sen. Randall Gardner is going to try and get legislative help. Whether the help will be monetary or passing legislation it is uncertain. Kalmar said that another step is to look at possible funding options. The townships will be responsible for making up the money for this maintenance. Kalmar is uncertain if this would lead to a tax BG city prepares for day by Kara Hud IHE BG NEWS Various businesses in Bowling Green will observe a national day of mourning today, as declared by President George Bush. The Flower Basket, in cooperation with the Bowling Green Unity Coalition, has been preparing red, white and blue ribbons to distribute among the residents and employees of Bowling Green. Owner Mary Ann Gibson, head of the coalition, has instructed the employees of each of her stores to make the ribbons. "They (the ribbons) show the unity of our citizens," Gibson said. Ribbons have already been distributed to city firefighters and police officers, as well as students of the city schools. Residents of the Wood County Senior Center are also aiding in the ribbon making. Six to nine thousand ribbons are expected to be distributed. "We will address situations as they arise," Gibson said. The Bowling Green Unity Coalition is also running a memorial fund for the lost firefighters and rescue workers of New York city. In addition, the coalition is encouraging residents to donate blood. "We will give extra time at lunch for employees," said mayor John Quinn. This time will give employees the opportunity to attend one of the local church services.

3 2 Friday. September 14, 2001 CAMPUS BG NEWS U. officer going to Winter Olympics by Craig Gilford IMS BG NEWS For many people, being a spectator at the Olympics is a once-ina-lifetime event. This winter at the Salt Lake City Games one University police officer will be working his second Olympics. lohn Shumaker, sergeant, served as an officer al the Atlanta Games and will do so again in Salt Lake City when the winter Olympics begin in February. "lust being there for the whole Olympic experience is fantastic," he said. "Where else can I see athletes of that caliber compete?" Shumaker said he applied to go to Salt Lake City about a year ago and found out in May that he would be going for sure. 0 >erations Lt. Dave Weekly was one of his fellow officers who recoinmend him for the job. "He's very good, very professional. I le comes back with a lot of networking, which helps us here," he said. Shumaker said he and the rest of the officers at the Atlanta Games were restricted in the duties they were given, mostly running X-ray machines and making sure areas around the city were locked at night. However, he said he will have the opportunity in Salt Lake City to do much more. "When I was assigned to Olympic Village (in Atlanta) I didn't do anything else. Here, I might be assigned to bobsledding one day and hockey the next, so we'll get a chance to see everything." According to Shumaker, hundreds of officers from outside Utah will be at the games and will lie given full arrest power. "At Salt Lake City it's going to be like a real police function," he said. "Utah doesn't have enough officers in the state. That's why they have to bring everyone else in." Numbers of officers and their duties may be forced to change, however, as the Olympic Committee is re-evaluating its security due to the terrorist attacks on Tuesday. Shumaker said that federal investigators may not be available for the Olympics because of ongoing investigations in New York and Washington. "It's always on the back of my mind (possible terrorist attack)," he said. "Park City Utah has a nuclear reactor. I'm sure that's going to cause a few problems." Shumaker was at the 1996 games when the bomb went off in Atlanta. However, the FBI and not the officers handled investigations. "We left the stage area like 15 minutes to a half hour before it went off. I did take pictures of it," he said. Having already served as an officer at one Olympics should make this one more enjoyable from the beginning, Shumaker said. "Last time when I went there I had no idea what to expect," he said. "Then when I got there I saw the magnitude of what it takes to pull off the event. Every law enforcement agency in the United States was represented.'' Although he has been assigned to numerous Bowling Green football games, those experiences could not fully prepare him for what the Olympics would be. "The crowds there were a lot larger than any we could ever have here. They pack the maximum number of spectators they can into the arenas," he said. "I wasn't used to all the camera crews that were there, either." Even though he spent four Michael Lehmkuhli BG Nem SALT LAKE BOUND: University police sergeant, John Shumaker will be working at the Olympic games in Salt Lake City in February. weeks in Atlanta and now will be spending three weeks in Salt Lake City, Shumaker said coming back to the smaller town of Bowling Green will not be hard. "It's nice to go away, but it's nice to come back, also, and see what I can change here and incorporate here," he said. "You pretty much were treated like a number there." New wa\-s of conducting police business and how to possibly improve upon' the University police division is one thing Shumaker hopes to gain from meeting the many other officers who are there. "Last time I brought Ixick so much knowledge, from how they do things; making sure all fire exits are accessible before the games and that we have fire and EMS personnel there," he said. "Things we sometimes lake for granted here." One of the hardest aspects of being an officer al the Olympics he said is working with officers from other countries. "I might have been working the X-ray machines (in Atlanta) with someone from East Germany. There was a big language barrier," he said. While Shumaker will be going lo the Olympics to work, he said he will also enjoy being a spectator as well. "They (Utah Olympic Public Safety Command) promise a six day week working eight to 10 hours a day and will have a list of planned activities for us to do when we're off, so I look forward to that," he said. "Also, with our credentials we'll have an unlimited pass so we can see any event we want. There isn't always a seat available, but we can stand in the back and watch." Weekly said he is envious of the opportunities that Shumaker has had and will have working at the Olympic Games. "I would like lo go, bul I can't get away. We don't have enough officers here lo send more than one," he said. "1 think it would be quite an experience." BG News welcomes vour ideas for future stories ' Call us at VERY IMPORTANT!

One camper was holding a spot for a friend who was attending classes "He (his friendl loves Everclear and wants the tickets. I would have been here 36 hours," he said. One prepared group came equipped with a tent and sleeping bags. Other fans sat on blankets playing Monopoly, just trying to stay awake after the long night of little or no sleep. According to Ryan Penick. who arrived at 12:30 am., "We're going to get good places." Fenick also said that they had been up all night but it was fun. Some people took shifts, among them Betsy Lyon, who was taking the 11 a.m. hour while her co-campers dutifully attended class. Freshman Meg Wolf talked excitedly about how she had rushed her roommate out of bed early to get in line before noon. Claiming she was the "biggest Everclear fan in the world" she helped prove that statement by saying she was skipping all work and school engagements to better her chances of having front row seats for the show. Two hours later the crowd had grown slightly and the mood had gotten rowdier. One long time camper climbed a nearby tree and hung upside down from it, much to the amusement of the people nearby. Another person brought a guitar no one seemed to be playing it. However those waiting in line would be ready for a sing-a-long later. In general, a party atmosphere prevailed outside of the Anderson Arena at 2 p.m. Thursday. Shortly after 2 p.m. the news began to spread that a National Day of Mourning had been declared for Friday.

D'Artagnan dashes the box office competition DAVID LEHR Entertainment Writer Foiling three other releases, "The Musketeer" made a stab at no. 1 over last weekend. The "wire-fu" film adaptation of Dumas' classic, "The Three Musketeers," made off with $10.3 million. Hollywood's screenwriters seem bent on defiling literature's richest classics, and screenwriter Gene Quintano felt Dumas the hack neglected to write enough "Matrix" into "Musketeers." Fencing in 2,438 locations, "The Musketeer" shared $4,230 among each screen. Still. "The Musketeer" needs to work on its parry if it is to lead the court next weekend. Debuting at no. 2, "Two Can Play That Game" played the game on 1,297 screens and hit 'em up for $7.7 million. The movie dished up a sweet $5,953 perscreen average as the genre never requires ultra-wide releases. "Two" continued the trend of low-budget, profitable movies geared toward the under-represented African-American community. As usual, the audience propelled it to a high opening; unfortunately, large drops tend to await it. The cross-over appeal is limited, but occasional films, like "Soul Food" and "Waiting to Exhale," have such appeal. "Iccpers Creepers" was cut in half its second week. It scared $6.2 million worth of movie-goers for a frightening $24.4 million total. While "Creepers" has not lasted long it will make money. When you make a dime in the horror genre, you make a sequel. When you are Francis Ford Coppola, who has outlived his genius by 20 years, you produce said sequel.

Some are retaliating against those without "American" status with verbal and physical insults. For those who wave the flag of freedom of oppression and religion, for those who wave the flag that stands for equality for all, how American are we acting? Many Americans are saying we must go to war. But a declaration of war against who? While the planes hijackers have been identified as being of Arabic descent, this does not mean that all people of Arabic origin or of the Islamic faith should be considered responsible for what happened. Tuesday events were the result of the association of a group of individuals. What pushed them to do it was an intense belief that what they were doing was right, that it would perhaps free them from oppression. While we might not agree with their method, we can not hide from a beast we have perhaps helped to create. Those specific individuals believed the United Slates is the great enemy. Those people believed they have been oppressed by the United States for years, and are aiming for a pay back. 210West Hall ^ Bowling Green Slate University Bowling Green, Ohio Phone:(419) Fax:(419) bgnews0listproc.bgsu.edu EDITORIAL BOARD MARY BETH WILFONG, MANAGING EDITOR MARIE CHICHE.

But for the few who were showed, how many of them stayed home, marked forever by the same images that hit us? Remember that Palestinians have been suffering for decades because one day, the United Nations (the United States included) decided to give their land to the Israeli people and to give financial and military support to Israel against whoever opposed die decision. Honestly, a few of us would have probably been dancing in the street during the Cold War if we had learned that Russia had been hit badly. And how would we react if what is considered today's Great Evil, Saddam Hussein, was killed? How fair is it of us to judge people we don't understand. Muslim extremists are probably responsible for what happened. But they are extremists, representing a minority of individuals within the Muslim population around the world. Would you like the be judged on the basis of those who perpetrated the Oklahoma bombing? Is Timothy McVeigh a proper representation of the American people?

Reports are coming from all around the country about those' of the Muslim faith being harassed, attacked or beaten up. Why? Because they happened to share the same faith or origin as those who perpetrated Tuesday attacks? Are they more responsible for those tragic events than Americans are for the Oklahoma bombing? Wasn't Timothy McVeigh of the same race and religion as many Americans? America has come together and reacted as one nation. Everywhere flags can be seen, and ihe country stands united. But when does patriotism become fanaticism? Where do we draw the line between defending our country and blaming people who are no more responsible of what happened than we are? When do we become of the same mind of those who flew the planes into the Towers and the Pentagon? It is time for American people to step back and realize what this nation is about. It is about Freedom and Equality, for everyone, no matter their races or religions. America, as a nation, will only be able to overcome this tragedy by standing together, united, under the great principles that founded it. AMYJO L.

ZUKEYA BRAVES, OFFICE ASSISTANT The Campus Voice 1 IN WAKF (IF TRAGFIW Be respectful of Muslim faith Sept (9/11), isaday that none of us will ever forget. This is the date that America became vulnerable. No doubt this is the most horrible act that has ever occurred on American soil. I would first like to encourage anyone and everyone to please go out and donate blood because if one life is saved from something that can be done here in Bowling Green, Ohio, it would be worth the entire campus donating blood. Now that I have encouraged all of you to go out and do something, I must discourage all of you from turning your hatred for the actions of these horrible individuals onto those people who look like them. The blame seems to have been placed on bin Laden and his group of terrorists (despite his denial of involvement). Bin Laden is a Muslim leader of a rogue group and does not necessarily represent every Muslim individual's belief system. I know people are enraged and rightfully so, but to act upon these frustrations towards people of similar appearance to tiiese terrorists makes you just as guilty as those individuals who flew the plane into the World Trade Center. I know this may sound drastic, especially with all of us seeing Muslims in Israel passing out candy in celebration to what happened here in the United States, but one must remember that these acts were acts of hatred and racism. And I believe that every individual who vandalizes the home or work of a Muslim family or who assaults a Muslim man is just as. guilty of spreading such intolerance in this world as those extremists who flew into the Pentagon. We here in the northwest part of Ohio must be especially mindful of this. Not only does Toledo have a strong Muslim population but we also have one of the only five Muslim Temples right off of An act upon this building is a disgusting act that should be punished to the full extent of the law. As Americans of all nationalities we should be mindful that this is a country that is supposed to be tolerant During World War II, America was guilty of such horrendous acts when we placed Japanese Americans into internment camps. We did this because we are fearful. As afraid as all of us are right now, we must place our faith into the federal government, from George W. Bush to the CIA. This support must cross party lines. I myself am a devoted Democrat and I support whole with all of my heart and soul. Remember, we are all Americans no matter what color, race, or creed. An inci- dent such as this should remind us of that As for the students who are upset that we continued to attend school on this date, I say that it was the right thing to do. Acts of terrorism are designed to stop the normal daily functions of life. Putting a stop to things such as college universities accomplishes this fact. Now it was necessary to close down airports because this was the method by which we were being attacked but I trust that the FAA will open these airports as soon as possible because it is important to show these terrorists that President Bush was coitect in saying that they may be able to break American steel but they can not break the steel of American resolve.

JUSTIN OORTCH A heartfelt thanks to fireman, police Tuesday, Sept. 11,2001 will for sure be a day tha" will forever remain in the hearts and minds of American citizens wherever they may be..vmong the midst of this tragedy, the United States lost several hundred of the guardians who help to keep this nation safe everyday. This nation lost several hundred members of its uniformed safety forces, its police officers, firefighters, and emergency medical services personnel. As someone who comes from a family of people who have devoted their lives to public service, including a number of people who wear the badge and uniform of our safety forces. I am especially saddened to hear about this loss of life. Those who have an association with any one of our safety forces will tell you that they arc more than just people who wear a uniform and badge, they are a family. Whenever one of these family members perish, a part of all of us perishes. Today, I feel like I am missing a major portion of my heart... today, a part of me has died. I am mourning the loss of over 250 firefighters and 75 police officers, not to mention scores of emergency medical services personnel. On behalf ofthemembersofthe Public Safety Organization, I would like to publicly offer our condolences to the families of all of the victims of this tragedy, but especially to the families of the members of our uniformed safety forces who have been lost. Know that in your grief, we grieve with you, and know that we shall not remember them only for the way they died, but we will remember them for the way they lived. Those lost today are heroes in every sense of the word. To our uniformed safety forces who continue to protect us from all enemies, foreign and domestic, know that our prayers are with you, and we are thinking of you in this time of great national mourning We wish you Godspeed and good luck, and we wish for your safety each and everyday. Citizens across America sincerely appreciate what you do. ANDREW CWZSM American flag deserves yearround respect I am a member of the University student body and also a member of the Ohio National Guard. I have found the way in which the student body has addressed the state of our government to be uplifting, but is it all the country could ask for? On the evening of SepL 11, there was a silent walk for victims of the days events. In the middle of this walk, a young man carried a flag of United States of America, a symbol of what this country stands for. Many men and women have lived and died for what the flag represents, so, in a way, the flag is also a symbol of their lives and the future lives of the men and women who will die fighting for its cause. So the next time you see the beautiful flag of the United States of America, do not let you hand hang at your side, or your hat stay on your head but remember those people that died so you can have your freedom today. Take your hat off, place your hand over your heart and give them the respect that they deserve. ADAM C. BARRICK BG Mayor expresses concern Two weeks ago yesterday morning I stood at the lop of the World Trade Center with only five other visitors and staff and looked at the grandeur of New York City and especially at Lady Liberty standing in New York Harbor. It is almost incomprehensible to me that those buildings are gone and thousands of people, some of whom I spoke with that day, are gone as well. The Statue of Liberty, however, still stands to represent the freedom we all enjoy. I'm sure that there is a tear in her eye as she gazes at Manhattan. On behalf of all of you I offer prayers for those who died, for those who died trying to save others, and to all their families. This is the greatest single tragedy that has befallen America It will be with us all forever. Our small city stands ready to offer what assistance we can and I urge each of you to do the same. Please remain calm, strong and resolute. Pray to your God and direct your anger to help America defeat our cowardly enemy and help America to emerge with more unity and strength than ever. JOHN B. OUINN Mayor. Bowling Green Hatred targeted at wrong people Once again I feel compelled to express my opinion about the subject of Tuesdays attacks and the after effects. Why do I continue to dwell on this subject? Simple. It's starting to hit home, lust today I witnessed two men harassing a female student who appeared to be of eastern descent. The words "bitch" and "you will get yours soon" were overheard by myself and a few other onlookers. Why does such an event have to spawn harassment like this? Does anyone stop to think that these people are in America and are probably just as affected by this situation as we are? Does it stand out that some students who are from the Middle East are scared to walk among American citizens today due to the violent nature of some peoples who can not understand that this is not the fault of individuals who live in the US? What needs to be done is simple; stop and think about how much pain citizens of the U.S. and other countries have gone through and how dumb you look when you harass someone who had nothing to do with the attack Another instance that I heard about deals with a man in Toledo stopping at a Muslim school that houses children who are between ages 6 and 12. This man stopped his car, said something to the effect of "your peo- LETTERS, PAGE 5 words. Name, phone number and ; printed.

That one man can be a total racist or just so stupid to blame innocent children for a terrorist act. Not really. He is one of thousands who are reacting this way. So far I have seen or heard of at least five instances of this kind of harassment and threatening today, three of those being on campus. BRENT UMINA s pitch in to help other students During times of tenor in our country, people have always tended to unite and help the cause; the people on the BGSU campus are no exception. A freshman student, Maureen O'Brien decided shed take the initiative to find out what could be done here on campus. O'Brien called the Wood County Hospital and the Red Cross searching for answers to her questions about a blood drive on campus. She found that, as of right now the Red Cross could not sponsor a blood drive on the campus because they do not have enough people. She did find out that there would be a blood drive on Wednesday in Toledo. O'Brien made flyers to tell people about the blood drive and gave information to those in charge of the candlelight vigil. She and her friends placed the fivers all around the BG campus. I've always wanted to give blood. I knew I would have to go to class during the blood drive and I didn't have a car to get there, so I wanted to do everything that I could to make sure other people could go. Through these flyers I could donate more to the cause than if I would have just went and gave a pint of my blood. Organizations have taken initiatives to help with the cause also. Kappa Sigma decided to organize a table where donations could be given to the Red Cross. A student in the fraternity, Matt Kaderfy, came up with the idea. While watching CNN, the idea popped into my head. I knew Kappa Sigma would want to help in some way, so 1 called around to various people, and "the donation table would help Red Cross which in turn would help the victims," said Kaderty. One hundred percent of the money raised goes directly to the Red Cross. Kappa Sigma will be there the rest of this week and on through next. Many religious organizations on campus have also banded together to pray and help students who are grieving right now. Campus Crusade for Christ, H20,519. and ACT all joined together to organize the prayer time at Prout Chapel for students. There are many other prayer times that the organizations are planning throughout the week for anyone who wants toga s all over the campus are uniting after Tuesday's tragedy, with the desire to help the victims and the country. HOLLY BARNES Accolades from former publisher Your front-page photograph in Wednesday's issue of David Adams carrying the American flag warmed my heart. As a veteran of World War II and the Korean Conflict, I find this gesture of patriotism on the part of the current generation of college student very meaningful and comforting in these troubled EDWIN L HEMIN6ER Retired Publisher, The Findlay Courier Effects of tragedy ripple though nation I got up and went to English 150, Response to Lit, taught by Brett Holden. I usually enjoy the class, and generally get a lot out of our discussions. Life was good, I was a bit hungry, my eyes a bit heavy, but the world was right. Yeah, the world was right, it was just fine up until the beginning of class when Brett announced that a jet had hit the WTC... The world suddenly felt slightly less right, but in a sick way, in hindsight, not so bad all things considered. I still had my shelter, my food, and was generally very fortunate. Class went well, we had a good discussion about growing up regarding the short story "Greasy Lake." (This is ironic for now as I reflect on today's events I realize more and more 1 could be called to fight for a country with whom 1 have serious moral qualm and objection, I know I don't want to grow up to thai. 11 got out of class and made my way down the dorm hall to my room. 1 opened the door and heard my roommate's TV on. He asked me if I knew what had happened and I said "no,"completely expecting it to be some silly right-wing occurrence that would more annoy me than excite me, and more anger me more than stimulate me. I have never been so wrong and so humbled in my entire life. The world had just gotten real mean, real quick. He told me two planes had hit the WTC... I was stunned. He went on to tell me how it was a terrorist attack. I about fell over. I checked my e- mail and my dad had written the following "Michael/ Am watching the hortoe sic in New York. Stay safe. Be careful. We love you./1 think about you everyday when I look at that beautiful knife you gave me./ So, now you're [sic) generation will know about war. I'm sorry./ Love, d" I then wrote a quick IM to Meagan, but I couldn't articulale anything more than "Oh God." 1 grabbed my purse with my rope and my light 1 think it was a security blanket or something... I really don't know. I ran out the door as if I could save someone's life by hurrying to nowhere in particular. I stumbled down the stairs, the railing was cold in my hand, slippery with sweat and tears that didn't mean anything except that I was numb. I made it down to Tom Klein's office, and sorta stood in the door, unsure of what to say. He motioned me in and told me to sit, I fell. The couch was soft and his words were the comfort I needed, not answers, but empathy. I left his office, and I saw people watching TV... People I passed were crying, some were laughing... Everyone was in shock. I can't describe it, the numbness, the inability to believe that it wasn't a special effect or a bad dream. I still haven't completely realized it. I walked around campus in a daze, I talked to Dustin. I tried to work. I tried to eat. I tried to understand To pray. Everyone was silent. The campus a church, prayer floated between "hello's" and "howareyou's..." No one knew what to say, and it was usually better when no one tried. I ate a little, mostly rice, later some cookies, nothing real, it didn't matter anyhow. I hung out with people, played liarky sack, but it was never far from my mind. I.tin Dustin came over again and I drew a peace sign on his shoulder bag... We listened to loan Baez, Arlo Guthrie, Johnny Cash. Ben Harper, Rage Against the Machine... Dustin left, people drifted in and out all night. Everyone was either panicked or lonely, or both... People were predicting Christ's second coming, asking others to repent, and I'm sure elsewhere on campus there was sufterstition of sorts taking place. Sometime later 1 talked to my younger brother who had a friend lose her parents, I was at a loss... He was filled with anger, hate, and vengeance... I realized then, as I saw him possessed by these th<ngs how much I love him, anil how non-quantifiable that really is. I love my family, and I wish they were here. Meagan and I talked sporadically, her words encouraged me, but I wanted to cry, to feel the whole thing as it actually was. It never came Even as I prayed at the art building with Michael Brown, it didn't come. As I saw pictures of multiple people throwing themselves 60 stories to their deaths to avoid a worse fate, it didn't come. It hasn't come yet, and I feel inhuman. Meagan told me of wanting to be there to let it sink in and realize it all. I agree, and I'm glad I'm not alone. I'm so afraid, but not of bombs, or of death, but of losing my humanity to numbness and to hate. MICHAELLORSUNG Should we defend our government? As members of Generation "Y"' we have grown up with the idea that our government is questionable in its motives. History has shown us the effects of Vietnam, the tension of the Cold War and the scandal of Iran Contra. We have often asked ourselves, what do we have to be patriotic about? Why serve a government would knowingly expose its own people to Agent Orange in Vietnam and to the biological warfare in the Persian Gulf? Why should we defend our government? In the midst of this myriad unpatriotic sentiment, we have even divided ourselves in the petty squabble that is politics. Vie have fought viciously against each other to elect men who run the country. In the hours after the world learned of the atrocities committed against the U.S., the people of Afghanistan took to the streets, exalting the toss of American life in a state of euphoric joy. This was our wakeup call. We should be angered, enraged. We are at the forefront of something that hasn't happened since lapan found out the hard way A sleeping giant has not been awoken, but rather conceived. The conception is that of a generation that has awoken to what we need to do, and the realization that we, in fact, are more than willing to do it. We are ready to defend our country. 6REG ZIEROFF Most American Muslims aren't terrorists Islam as the Al-Qaeda terrorist organization understands it is a false religion. The Qu'ran as the Al-Qaeda organization understands it is a false book. Muhammad as the Al-Qeada organization understands him is a false prophet Muslims can say "Amen" to those three statements. The Qu'ran instructs Muhammed's followers to "Kill the unbelievers wherever you find them," and promises paradise to those who die in Jihad (holy war to promote Islam). But these passages can be contextualized that is. they may be considered applicable to only specific situations which occurred in the lifetime of Miiliuinni.nl. Christians who read Paul's letter to Timothy in II Timothy 4:13 ("Bring the cloak that I left with Carpus at Troas") do not conclude that they should travel to the town of Troas to get Paul's cloak. The death-to-the-infidels passages in the Qu'ran can be contextualizes similarly. Other passages, encouraging tolerance and freedom of religion, may be emphasized. If only I could say that every Muslim in America rejects Al- Qaeda interpretation of the Qu'ran. That would make it easier for me to say that Christians should Muslims' right to freely practice their religion in this country. However, some Muslims believe that Al-Qaeda's view is correct and I do not want to say that we should defend anyone's right to engage in a military holy war. I believe that the leaders of Al- Qaeda correctly interpret the Quran's intent: Muhummad wanted his instructions about Jihad (holy war) to be permanent I hope that Muslims will reject that interpretation anyway, now that we have seen its fruits. In other words, as a Christian, I hope that Muslims will perceive that Islam innately violent and oppressive, and cannot be true. Just as zealous Muslims want Christians to embrace Islam. I want Muslims to accept Christianity. I would be selfish and apathetic if I did not want to share the gospel. But most Muslims in America probably will remain Muslims who contextualizes the Quran's statements about lihad. They have the right to practice their religion as much as everyone else does. No one should intimidate them, harass them, or harm them in any way, or allow other to do so. But people who commit murder or applaud murderers due to their interpretation of the Qu'ran whether it is a correct interpretation or not should expect that they and their interpretation be denounced, rejected and outgrown. JIM SNAPPII Minister, Wayne Church of Christ Staying open the best way to fight terror 1 am a graduate student who came to Bowling Green just a few weeks ago to study a master's degree in accounting My native language is Spanish, so I'll try to do my best. Being here, in "the heart of America." during this honendous crime, really makes me stop and think about whom we are. Today I read the opinion letters in the section "Campus Voice" opposing President Ribeau's position that the University remains open in this time of distress and I cannot remain silent I respectfully disagree with my fellow students. I think you don't need to stop your job to show respect We can show respect in a lot different ways than closing our University. What really enraged and angered me was the cowardly attack that somebody held on the United States' government and its innocent people. Staying on campus was the best way for the University administration to keep us together. If everybody went home we wouldn't have been together. We must be united in spirit with our fellow Americans who fell victims to a bunch of heartless arid senseless fanatics, but should also be together as a group with a common purpose. Also, we should be proud of our fallen heroes who fought the hijackers and gave their lives to divert the plane in Pennsylvania, out of harms way for other innocent Americans. That is what bravery is all about and so is staying together. This is a time of war and through history the great wars have been fought with the people and the soldiers together. The warriors do their duty and the civilians go on with their daily work to support them morally. During WW11 children went to school, teachers went to their classes, and that was the way they survived. During the continuous bombings that the Nazis time and again hit London, the children went to school, even in the subway tunnels, because the country has to keep on learning working to show the enemy that they could not destroy the will of a nation. In the United States they did the same. That's the only way you can demonstrate your enemy that you are strong If we can handle the pain and the sadness that an act like this cause us, we keep our heads up and show these bastards that they are not going to disrupt our way of life, that they are not going to make us stop doing our duty as students, as professors, as administrators, as secretaries, as schoolteachers, and so on. They can hit us once, twice, and we will keep on fighting But we cannot fight these fanatics with bullets because that's the duty of the military. We have to fight these murderers with an iron will, the will to continue building our society by becoming better Americans, and for us that means to be better students, better teachers and better administrators here at the University. As I said before, we are at war, we should not forget that, and our weapons here at the University are our commitment with excellence and that's also our patriotism. Now we have to be more cautious on who leaves next door, and most of all, who we let in our airplanes. It will be a matter of time until we find a way to stop terrorism, but at least we must make it very difficult for the enemy to attack the innocent. One last thought and I am sure that lots of us thought about this. Tuesday, when the vicious military force of the enemy struck our civilians, the first thing that came into my mind was: "Give me a rifle that I want to make them stop abusing the innocent." Probably I am too old to go and fight in a war that hasn't being declared yet, but I can always help by doing my job to the best of my ability without stopping, and I believe that was the message President Ribeau tried to transmit to us Tuesday afternoon. 1 totally agree with him. MODESTO ROSADO Graduate Homework and classes hinder coping I've had a hard time dealing with my own emotions this week, as I'm sure others have. At this moment, I honestly cannot remember a thing my professors have talked about all week. Tuesday seems so long ago. While I did feel somewhat better when I talked to others in my classes, it honestly wasn't enough. President Ribeau's decision to keep classes in session on Tuesday was, in my opinion, a distressing error. Did he honestly think any student would respect him after this decision? In his comments in Thursday's issue of The News, he claimed assurance of "no physical threat to anyone on campus." How ignorant. As someone who has no frame of reference whatsoever for this week's events, I know I will never again have the same sense of security I've had for twenty-two years. On Tuesday morning I surely was not going to accept the word of someone, like President Ribeau, whom I've never met, "assuring" me that my safety was not in danger. If four hijackings and thousands of lives lost in one day can surprise our country, why did I have any reason to think we are safe as we walked to classes on Tuesday? I know this week's events are something I will have to accept and deal with for the rest my life, but the rest of my life hasn't happened yet. This is now, this is today, and the threat to the American way of life is very real. While there is something to be said for keeping your chin held high and being brave in the face of such tragedy, even the bravest must cry. President Ribeau did say, however, his decision to keep classes open was twofold. Besides the events being no threat to our safety, keeping classes in session was to give "A dbs, stu-ients the opportunity to be vith other students and faculty. In this respect he was correct. But 'here are plenty of ways you can be with fellow students and noi t v in class. Our entire world has - >e«n turned upside down; gtiii'i' to class was simply the result o f routine and not wanting to be iilone with our emotions. Support groups, vigils and the like were what we needed this week, not the burden of classes and homework (I couldn't believe that some of my professors actually did not say a word about the tragedy, but instead assigned homework due for the following class). I will gladly resume my duties as a student, President Ribeau, but please, what your students needed on Tuesday was time to cope. KATETORGERSON Attacks not an excuse for hate crimes As an American citizen, I am pretty upset at what has happened this past week. Not only am 1 upset at what these terrorists have done, but I am upset as to how some of my fellow Americans have reacted to this tragical event. Many students across campus were angry that Mr. Ribeau did not cancel classes on Wednesday. I for one applaud his act in not doing so. This may sound absurd to some, but you must remember, the people that were behind this horrid act of violence, wanted us as Americans to be caught off guard and stop everything we were doing. Granted that this may be difficult for some of us, I encourage you all to be strong in this tragic, event. I also found myself upset with some of my fellow university students when they learned Friday was declared as a "national day of mourning." What was it that I heard come out of people's mouths when they learned class was cancelled on Friday? "Yes! No class... let's all go to the bars and get drunk!" For all of you that decided to do so, you should be ashamed. This is a large university, and ivith such a large scale event, did you even consider that many of your fellow classmates could have been personally affected by such a tragic event? Another issue that has really caught my attention is that of American citizens going out and "getting those back for what was done." Yes, there are American citizens that are of Middle East descent, even at our university, but no, they had nothing to do with this awful act of terrorism. Please. I encourage you as respectful Americans, do not take matters into your own hands and commit hate crimes against those just because of the color of their skin. Once again, these people had nothing to do with this gut-wrenching tragedy, and for you to commit any type of act of violence against them, would bring you down to an even lower level of those that hijacked the four airplanes. I encourage all of my fellow classmates at Bowling Green State University to remain strong and to not succumb to what these awful people attended by committing this hate crime against our nation.

(AP) Kentucky officials were lold by the family of Louisville men's basketball coach Rick Pitino that Pitino's brother-in-law, William Mirandi, is still missing in New York after the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center. The family issued the information because of a erroneous report that listed Mirandi as a survivor in critical condition. FOOTBALL ENTIRE MAC SCHEDULE CANCELED FOR THIS WEEKEND. FRIDAY September 14, BOWLING GREEN STATE UNIVERSITY Sports step aside in crisis Searching to find anything familiar ERIK CASSANO Sports Editor What do you do when we are exposed for the imperfect, fragile, monal beings we are? Tuesday we were. Tuesday the World Trade Center fell in large concrete boulders and steel shrapnel onto lower Manhattan. Tuesday aimed a civilian-filled missile right at our nation's defense nerve center. Tuesday, Sept. 11, terrorists used American aircraft with American passengers and flew them to their deaths as they frantically called loved ones on cell phones to say final good-byes. Tuesday, America changed forever. Nothing was left unaffected. There was no escape. There was nothing to take our minds off of the worst single disaster in the modem history of the Western world. Sports was one of the arenas to be affected. With large-scale travel needs over long distances, and the lack of essential existence in a time of crisis, sports suddenly became a mere diversion, unnecessary. What happens when professional athletes, some of the biggest, strongest people in the world, become like children again? Tuesday, members of the Chicago White Sox were staying at a hotel in Manhattan getting ready to start a series against the New York Yankees. Many saw the World Trade Center get hit and collapse right before their eyes. One member of the White Sox said "I just want to get out of here New York]." The team took a bus back to Cleveland, where it had been playing a series against the Indians until Monday. Major League baseball has postponed all games through Sunday. The NFL formally announced yesterday that it will not play this weekend, citing the players' belief that their hearts would not be in it Closer to home. Bowling Green announced yesterday they would not travel to South Carolina this weekend for a football game Men's and women's soccer games and a planned volleyball trip to Colorado were also postponed. Comedian George Carlin once wrote about people that say things like "This really makes you realize what's important" when an athlete is laying injured on the Geld. "If you need something like that to make you realize what is important in life, your priorities are messed up to begin with," he wrote Yet, we still cherish the escapism of sports. It becomes something we take for granted until it is taken away and replaced with terror. Monday, things may start to return to some semblance of normal. A new work week will start across the country, baseball will reportedly start back up after a six-day layoff. Attention will slowly shift back to things like Barry Bonds' pursuit of Mark McGwire's record and BG's upcoming game against Temple. There will come a time where we need to take our minds off this week for our own collective mental health. Despite the magnitude of this disaster, despite the fact that sports seems so unimportant right now, it still holds a place for us. Baseball stops until Monday by Ronald Blum!H ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW YORK Major league baseball postponed all games through Sunday and will resume play the following day. Since Tuesday's attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon, baseball has wiped out six days of play. The latest decision raised the total of postponed games to 91, the most since World War I caused nearly the entire final month of the 1918 season to be canceled. Commissioner Bud Selig said all players will wear American flags on their uniforms for the remainder of the season, and American flags will be given to fans during all games Monday. "The more I thought about it, I couldn't rationalize starting before Monday," Selig said Thursday. Baseball will make up all the games by extending the regular season, which had been scheduled to end Sept. 30. The games will be rescheduled for the week of Oct. 1. "I believe in the sanctity of the 162-game schedule," Selig said. That leads to the possibility of thewtorld Series, long known as the October Classic, producing its first Mr. November. It originally had been scheduled to end Oct. 28. "I believe that extra week will not be harmful," said Selig, who made his decision after examining which teams were in contention for the playoffs. "I worry about weather in October. Fortunately, we have a lot of warm-weather teams, a lot of West Coast teams." Selig made his announcement more than four hours after the NFL said it would not play this weekend. He said that wasn't a factor in his decision. Initial response appeared to be positive. "It's a good thing in light of the events that have happened," Cleveland Indians assistant general manager Mark Shapiro said. By rescheduling the games, baseball ensured Cal Ripken and Tony Gwynn would finish their Hall of Fame careers at home instead of on the road. Ripken and the Baltimore n* Associated Prtn MOURNING: The American flag flies at half staff at Comerica Park in Detroit next to a statue of Tigers' Hall of Famer Al Kaline. Baseball has suspended all games through Sunday due to the terrorist attacks In New York and Washington, D.C. earlier this week. Orioles were to end the season at Yankee Stadium, while Gwynn and the San Diego Padres were to finish in San Francisco. Two teams already had started traveling to the cities where they were to play Friday. The Pittsburgh Pirates left their ballpark in buses at 11:15 a.m. Thursday to travel to Chicago, where they were to play the Cubs. The Philadelphia Phillies worked out at Turner Field in Atlanta, then left at 1:30 p.m. in four buses headed for Cincinnati, where they were to play the Reds. After hearing the news, the Phillies decided to continue on, spend the night in the Cincinnati area, then head to Philadelphia. With air traffic grounded, many teams on the road at the time of the attacks chartered buses to get home: the Chicago White Sox from New York, the Minnesota Twins from Detroit, the St. Louis Cardinals from Milwaukee, the Cleveland Indians from Kansas City, the New York Mets from Pittsburgh and the Toronto Blue lays from Baltimore. The Indians arrived home at 11 a.m. Thursday after a 14- hour trip and the Mets arrived at 2:30 am. after a 7-hour trip. The Blue lays got back to the SkyDome at 8:30 am. following 12 hours on the road. The Boston Red Sox, in St. Petersburg, Fla, to play the Devil Rays, went by bus to central Florida and boarded an Amtrak train headed north, at first unsure whether they would get off in Baltimore to play the Orioles or keep going to Boston. AP writers Joel Eskovitz, Alan Robinson, Tom Saladino and Tom Withers contributed to this story. Rugby wins 2 against Spartans In a series last weekend that could only be described as "winning ugly", the Bowling Green rugby team posted two victories and a tie against Michigan State. The Falcons skunked the Spartans twice by scores of 19-0 and 37-0 while edging them in the nightcap. BG also squeaked by Findlay For Falcon rugby fans, the misfiring offense and defensive struggle came as a big surprise. No less surprised were the Falcons themselves as they were facing a team they had defeated by 50 points last and were returning 14 of 15 starters from last year's national championship squad "It looked like we had left our best game on the practice field," said BG coach Roger Mazzarella. "Dropped passes, people out of position, bad timing you name it, we did it In fact it seemed like we showed up determined to beat Michigan State with just our reputation." To BG's credit however, while the offense may have been AWOL the defense was stellar, lammed up on several occasions in the shadow of their own goal posts, the Falcon defense shut down everything the Spartans threw at them. Back row forwards Reed Luecke, Alex Demma and Mike Hotz along with center Scott Mullins seemed to be everywhere at once to give BG its fourth straight shutout of the young season. Scrum half Vinnie Staropoli, who opened BG's scoring with a 'first half try, very nearly became the goat of the game. With BG holding a razor thin 7-0 lead, Starpoli did a double back flip with a twist into the end zone to avoid a tackle, only to fumble the ball voiding the score. Starpoli made up for the error by bursting up the middle for 80 yards to put BG on top Flanker Alex Demma's try late in the game closed out the scoring along with fly half Chad Cunningan's two conversion lacks. The offense got untracked a bit in the second match which saw lock Scott Hogg smash the single game scoring record for forwards with four tries, against the Spartans. "I recruited Scott out of a line in the bookstore during prereg," Mazzarella said. "He's got the ability to be one of the best locks we've ever had play here." In the third match. BG took a 12-0 lead and hung on to win Fly half Dave DiBennedetto scored a try and hit on the conversion and center Doug Niemiec scored what proved to be the game winner. That same scenario was played out against Findlay, as BG again took an early lead while fighting off a spirited comeback by the Oilers. DiBennedetto's penalty field goal made the difference in the victory on top of tries by flanker Andy Luciano and Kyle Sitzes. The Falcons, now 7-0-1, will host what is quickly becoming arch-rival Indiana University Saturday. After nearly two decades of dominating the Hoosiers, BG and Indiana have battled it out for national playoff slots for the past four years. BG knocked Indiana out of playoff contention last fall with a victory that sent the Falcons to the national championship this past spring. With BG ranked third and the Hoosiers fourth, this weekend's match may be a rehearsal for the Midwest playoffs in November. Game time is 1 p.m. at the College Park Rugby Field. Browns thankful not to play Sun. by Tom Withers THE ASSOCIATED PRESS BEREA. Ohio Butch Davis isn't preparing a game plan for the Pittsburgh Steelers anymore. He won't be coaching the Cleveland Browns in an NFL game Sunday night. So, Davis will do something more important. "I'm just going to spend time with my wife and son," said Davis, his eyes welling with tears. "And thank God that I've got both of them." Relief. That's what Cleveland's front office, coaching staff and players felt on Thursday shortly after commissioner Paul Tagliabue announced the league will not play its 15 games this weekend following the terrorist attacks in New York and Washington. "There's a strong sense of relief among our players that we are not playing," team president Carmen Policy said. "I know this was a very, very difficult decision for the commissioner. But we felt it was right to walk away this weekend." After Tagliabue's announcement, Browns linebacker lamir Miller, quarterback Tim Couch, center Dave Wohlabaugh and defensive end Keith McKenzie met with reporters to discuss the decision and their feelings. The players supported the commissioner's choice not to play. They said that practicing the past two days was nearly impossible after seeing the atrocities on TV. "You really couldn't quit thinking about it," Couch said. "I thought it was ultimately the right decision. I couldn't see 80,000 people coming to a stadium and cheering with all that's going on in the country right now." The Browns were scheduled to open Heinz Field in Pittsburgh with a nationally televised game against the Steelers, their biggest rival. On Wednesday, the club had announced it would make the 120-mile trip to Pittsburgh by bus instead of flying by charter. However, McKenzie said many of the Browns were more concerned about a terrorist attack on a packed stadium than being in the air. "A lot of people had doubts about our safety if we had played," he said. "Especially, in a nationally-televised game. If you wanted a perfect target, that was a perfect target." Miller said he gained a better understanding of the grave situation in New York during a teleconference Wednesday night with Giants players Michael Strahan and lason Sehom as well as lets center Kevin Mawae. "First and foremost, they weren't getting on a plane," Miller said. They weren't traveling. They saw the carnage. They saw everything. How could you focus on a game when your mind is focused on other things?" Beyond being in danger from an outside threat, Miller said, the players were concerned about getting injured going into a game distracted. "If you aren't focused, anything can happen to you," Miller said. "You can die on the field."

10 BG NEWS Friday, September 14, U. holds remembrance service Campus gathers on University Hall lawn to pay respects for victims, families and friends. by Marie Chiche THE BG NiWS President Bush has declared today a National Day of Prayer and Remembrance. The University is observing this day by canceling classes and holding a remembrance service. "I encourage all to come together for this program at 10 a.m. on the University Hall lawn to honor the victims and support their loved ones," wrote University President Sidney Hiln-.ui in a letter to the University community. The memorial service will be held on the lawn of University Hall "rain or shine," said Richard Kaverman, director of communication in the Office of Marketing and Communication. "It is not mandatory for anyone to be at the service." Eileen Sullivan, executive assistant for the President Office, said the service will be the time allowing the BowlingGreen community^ to come together and reflect on the tragedy. 'The goal is to provide opportunities for faculty members, staff and students to talk," she said. Following the service, faculty and staff will be released for the remainder of the work day, except for those working in spe- cific offices and departments. Sullivan said it was important to keep providing students services needed. "We have students who need to have the library open to them, to have outlets open such as the Rec Center," she said. Faculty have also been asked to help to organize teach-ins either this afternoon or next week. "Teach-ins will be the opportunity for students to learn more about topics relating to Tuesday's tragedy through several depart- ments," said lim Evans, Faculty Senate chair. "We recognize that students will have a lot of questions," Sullivan said. Evans added that the deans of individual colleges will decide whether they want to provide teach-in opportunities or not. The President's Office is also encouraging students to make suggestions what the University should do to handle -the situation. "We will value suggestions from students, faculty and staff," Sullivan said. The decision to cancel classes was made yesterday around noon. President Ribeau gathered leaders from different areas on campus, including student leaders, to announce his decision. "The president feels very strongly that this is the time for reflection and remembrance," Sullivan said.

13 B Monday.. September Terrorists, others at fault JON A. CLIPSON Guest Columnist As an American cilizen, I am prelty upset at what has happened this past week. Not only am 1 upset at what these terrorists have done, but I am upset as to how some of my fellow Americans have reacted to this tragic event. Many students across campus were angry that President Ribeau did not cancel classes on Wednesday. I applaud his act in not doing so. This may sound absurd to some, but you must remember, the people that were behind this horrid act of violence, wanted us as Americans to be caught off guard and stop everything we were doing. Granted, this may be difficult for some of us, I encourage you all to be strong in this tragic event. I also found myself upset with some of my fellow University students when they learned Friday was declared as a "National Day of Mourning." What was it that I heard come out of people's mouths when they iearned class was canceled on Friday? "Yes! No class...let's all go to the bars and get drunk!" For all of you that decided to do so, you should be ashamed. This is a large University, and with such a large scale event, did you even consider that many of your fellow classmates could have been personally affected by such a tragic event? Another issue that has really caught my attention is that of American citizens going out and "getting those back for what was done." Yes, there are American citizens Thoughts on tragedy KELLY IVANS Guest Columnist As I sit here, I am in disbelief, disbelief that such a tragedy could ever happen to this nation. However, I do not blame our country's leaders or government for what happen. This is what the terrorists would want us to do. This event has caused me to reflect on things that 1 would never have imagined could ever happen. I have not been dealing well with the recent occurrences. Every day I am brought to tears. The sad stories are continually broadcasted on every channel of the news and no matter how much they depress me I cannot turn my head from the television, i feel in a way that I need to feel what others are going through. I feel like 1 have to mourn with these victims, it is not fair that this had to happen to all these innocent people. I am just as inno- cent as they are, but 1 was lucky, that is the only way I can look at it. We all know of something that links us to this horrible event. I hear all my peers saying things like, "My dad was supposed to fly that morning," "My friends, relatives live in New York," or, "My professor's colleagues worked in that building." lust the mere fact that one of the hijacked planes flew over my hometown, Cleveland, brings me chills to me. This past week seems so surreal. As my roommate and I make many phone calls to all our loved ones, I over heard my roommate on the phone to her four-year-old nephew who, at the same time, glanced at the television. He saw one of the many times they replayed a plane crash into the World Trade Center. At that very moment I heard him say, "That must have hurt." "What must have hurt?" she asks. I le responds, "The boom, the plane goes boom into the building, ouch." that are of Middle East descent, even at our University, but no, they had nothing to do with this awful act of terrorism. Please, I encourage you as respectful Americans, do not take matters into your own hands and commit hate crimes against those just because of the color of their skin. Once again, these people had nothing to do with this gutwrenching tragedy, and for you to commit any type of act of violence against them would bring you down to an even lower level of those that hijacked the four airplanes. I encourage all of my fellow classmates at Bowling Green State University to remain strong and to not succumb to what these awful people attended by committing this hate crime against our nation. I will live with this event for the rest of my life. I never fully understood the effects of the life changing events in our history before September 11. Pearl Harbor, the assassination of JFK. I knew they were tragic, but I never had to feel the emotions they caused. I will now see my life before this act of terrorism and after. People are dealing with it in many ways; some are actually really disturbing. I have to remember not to let myself judge. People are different and will deal with it in different ways. 1 will not have anger or hate for people that are happy we got school off so they can go out and party or people that are laughing while others are crying. I will not let hate cause hate. That is what the terrorists want to happen. 1 know a lot of people want to strike back and seek revenge. We have to remember that justice needs to be sought, but we cannot fill ourselves with hate while pursuing it. BG NEWS Time to re-evaluate life ANDY I SHOTWELL 'p/ Opinion Columnist I woke up late for work on Tuesday. I was up the night before desperately trying to finish a project (that I never got done, by the way). I knew I would never make it in time if I didn't shave some time off my usual morning routine. Because I was hurrying, and not paying attention, I lopped off a nice meaty hunk of my jugular with my Mach 3 blade. So now I was late and I had bloody pieces of toilet paper stuck to my face. I couldn't find two matching socks, my brown shoes, or an ironed shirt, and I was desperately running short on time. I finally said screw it and ran out of the house wearing a brown belt, black shoes, one full length Nike soccer sock, a mid cut Haines sock, and a shirt with a distinct odor that I pulled from behind my bed. So to recap, I hadn't finished my project, I was definitely going to be late and make a bad impression on my boss, I had a toilet paper tourniquet sopping up blood from the gaping laceration on my neck, and I looked and smelted like walking hell. Oh, and on the way to work, I realized my truck was long overdue for an oil change and 1 had forgotten to brush my teeth. Finally, I pulled into the parking lot and snuck ninja-style to my desk, hoping no one noticed me, only to find the office deserted. Then the announcement came over the loud speaker. I was asked to report to one of three rooms to watch a live broadcast on CNN. The moment my eyes met the television screen all of my insignificant little problems faded away. Everyone watched in silence as two 767s crashed into the World Trade Center. I silently begged the net vork to stop showing angl»- after angle of destruction. St was surreal. I had to be watching a movie. This had to be Gotham or Metropolis, not Manhattan. But unfortunately, the bad guys had won (this round) and no one was there to save the day. I went to the vigil on campus that night and mourned with hundreds of University students. I couldn't stop thinking about how selfish I felt for pretending I had problems the very same morning. I go to bed every night and am consumed with insignificant worries and doubts about my life. The last few nights I haven't thought about my troubles. I've spent that time praying for the thousands of family members of victims and the governmental decision makers that have real problems. We need to join together as this dark cloud descends upon the U.S. Put your problems in perspective. Before you worry about who is going on the beer run or what you are wearing to the bars tonight, take a moment to reflect on why we have our freedom and what is really important in your life. Hug your girlfriend extra tight, cut that guy who bumps into you at the bar some slack, and never forget how wonderful your life is. Oh, and call your mother. Thoughts on tragedy and consequences thereof DANIELLE BOAZ Guest Columnist Like a number of students who were shocked by the events of last Tuesday. I have attended the vigils and memorial services that have been held throughout campus. Somewhere in the midst of my tears and my fears, I can remember this constant heeding by speakers not to take our anger out on our own international students. Leaders of our campus and our nation repeated this worry that people would let heir shock and pain turn to anger and attack anyone who looked like they might be from a country that could have born and cultivated these terrorists. Newspapers talked about the angry mob that beat a man in New York because he was of Arab descent, even though he'd been in the United States his whole life. Everyone keeps repeating this word anger and telling us to be cautious about what our anger leads us to do I thought to myself, but I am so angry. My family was there, in Pittsburgh, so near to where that plane went down. I spent B hours not knowing whether they were dead or alive. So many of my friends are still waiting, fearing to leave their homes because that call might come, that news that will finally end their fears or make them all come true. The rage becomes too blinding sometimes and like many of my fellow citizens I fear war but 1 woufd be one of the first lined up to fight just so that I'd know I'd never again see anything on the news like what I saw last week. I must confess, I've been consumed by my own emotions and I've been selfish. My best friend, she was bom in America, but her whole family is from the Middle East. A number of them live there still. She is my best friend and yet, when she told me that she was terrified that we would go to war with whatever country these terrorists were from, I looked at her like she was crazy. In my head, I was picturing vengeance on all those people that flooded our televisions from places like Palestine. People that celebrated in our pain, danced in the streets and cheered because our people were dying. In her head, she saw months of fighting, bombing, innocent people shot, raped and killed by our soldiers. In her head she saw months of waiting, desperately fearing the ring of the phone for it might tell her that a cousin or uncle or grandparents had been lost in the war. She saw months, maybe years, of what 1 had barely been able to stand for 8 hours. For herself, she saw the situation escalating from what she's had to deal with this past week. She saw the name-calling and dirty looks turning into physical abuse. Maybe we'd start to put her people into camps like we did with the Japanese-Americans during WWII. Maybe the United States would start to question the loyalty of citizens of this country who have never even known any other home. This is what she saw, but 1 didn't see it, all I saw was anger. After a little time has passed, I've been able to suppress the anger so that it is but an ember, yet it burns all the time. Still, the suppres- sion has been enough to let me see how selfish I've been. In the midst of all that's been done to us, I've forgotten what we have done. I've forgotten how many nations we have bombed, how many people we have killed in the name of capitalism, in the name of democracy. Despite all that we have done to other countries think of how enraged we have been when they took out their anger on our tourists or soldiers that happened to be in the country we were bombing. We fought so hard to have our people freed and raved about how they could not be blamed for the actions of our government. I mean, how much control does the average man have over the countries we go to war with? I would say none. So what makes any U.S. citizen believe that to attack people from the a country that we think did this is going help. I only see how it hurts. Bette Midler wrote in one of her songs, "from a distance, you look like my friend, even though we are at war." Those words make me think of my best friend because we may soon be at war with her people and her family but she still looks like my friend. That's because all this is so distant, so removed from all of us. It has touched our lives so deeply and painfully but who of you can stop it or start it with words from your lips or a wave of your hand? Why do we blame each other when all of our hands are tied? My prayer today is that all of you who read this would be reminded to share the pain, not spread the blame because no healing comes from hurting.
