Anyway, enough Duran Duran lyrics... if anyone's familiar with the site sfraves.com, they have this mailing list, and today I got the following message from them in my e-mail box:
"In light of this tragedy, we have been asked to relay this to our list:
Friday Night at 7:00 p.m. step out your door, stop your car, or step out of your establishment and light a candle. We will show the world that Americans are strong and united together against terrorism.
Please pass this to everyone on your e-mail list. We need to reach everyone across the United States quickly."
So a humble San Francisco based mailing list wants to travel across the country. Well, I figured that it would be a sweet gesture and that there are some people up on livejournal who would like to do the same.
Also, everything on LJ spreads like wildfire... so anyone who is feeling particularly helpful or whatever can take the above message and paste it into a mail and forward it to everyone they know so that we can honour the dead.
Feel free to link to this post, too, if you're too busy to send out emails... because I am sure someone will read it and pass it on.
