Are We To Crumble In The Presence Of Terrorism?
A number of people have decided to forego business as usual
because of the recent terrorist attacks on the USA which
have caused untold loss of life and property and enormous

aftermath affects us all and will be far-reaching.
We must not let the dastardly acts of a few terrorists stop
us in our tracks. That is precisely what they wished to
