The Rest of New York City

One of the terrorism experts that have been popping up all over the place since Tuesday (I don't remember his name) made a very valid point. They were asking him what he feels is the most lacking area of community preparedness, and he said that "counseling or psychiatric help for the community" was it. There will be plenty of help for victims' families and survivors, as well there should be. However, the rest of the people, even those with absolutely NO connection, have suffered and are suffering as well.

This really struck a chord with me. Every one of my friends and family in NYC are safe and sound. I thank whatever Deity is out there for that. But I'm seeing all kinds of survivor's guilt and self-defeating words/thoughts at different levels from different friends.

I've been letting everyone know how much I care about them, how much I appreciate them as people and the ones I'm really worried about, I've been trying to convince them to talk to someone about getting Post-Trauma counselling.
