South Bay Area, California: i can't really say what the impact is here because i didn't live here before the events of 9/11. but i can say that others have told me that attractions in the nearby area aren't nearly as crowded as they normally would be this time of year. oh, and lots of free tickets to things for military members and their families--about time, i say!

security is tight which is great! and i'm serious.

For one thing, workers in the Bay area of California (San Francisco) did not go to work today. C-5s were circling in tributefrom Travis AFB and I will return to the eastern US next week. I do not like being out here. I want to go where I feel safe, and that is back east.

for a take on the rest of thje world, this from Athens, Greece:

IN MEMORY OF 9/11

Events for the one year anniversary since the terrorist attack on New York have
been programmed for today in Athens and Thessaloniki.

In the capital, at 10am, a memorial service took place at the Metropolis, while an
hour later, a memorial service was held at US Ambassador Thomas Miller's
residence, in the memory of the victims of September 11.

Also, the Foreign Ministry is organizing an event for the one year anniversary
since the attack at the Athens "Megaron" Music Hall.

In Thessaloniki, a meeting has been organized at a major hotel, on "September
11: Media and terrorism". It has been organized by the Ministry of
Macedonia-Thrace, Greek Radio and Television, in cooperation with the city's US
Consul.

A tribute will also be paid to the victims of the attack by the Athens Stock Market
(ASE), which will participate in the movements of all European markets in
memory of the attack.

In that framework, at 14:46 (Greek time), a two minute silence period will be
observed, while the markets and the exchange systems, both in the ASE, as well
as in other European stock markets, will remain open.

I definitely agree with wolfie that it is great to have tight security. Even the multiple security checks I had to endure were done agreeably since I hope if anything bad shows up, they will catch it.
