Just so you guys in the States know what is happening abroad:

"Ireland this morning joined the world in observing a three-minute silence in memory of the victims of America's worst terrorist atrocity.

The Taoiseach and the President have joined other Church and political leaders in Dublin's Pro-Cathedral for an ecumenical service, presided over by Cardinal Desmond Connell.

Hundreds of other religious ceremonies are taking place around the State to remember the thousands who lost their lives in the United States on Tuesday. Many Irish are believed to be amongst the dead.

Today is a National Day of Mourning with businesses, schools and State Departments shutting down. Transport companies are operating a Sunday service and all trains will come to a standstill at midday as a mark of respect.

All State employees have been given the day off work to allow them attend commemorative ceremonies. The Irish Times decided yesterday it would not be publishing today.

All banks and building societies have closed along with the large retail chains such as Dunnes Stores, Tesco, Superquinn and Boots."
