Friday was spent watching the news networks track a terror threat. Fighter jets escorted a plane as it landed in New York, airports stepped up security, and, finally, we heard that, yes, there were in fact explosives found.
I imagine people are reacting to this in several ways. First, you could breath a sigh of relief and give a little cheer that our intelligence and security systems functioned the way they should and any actual attack was averted. Of course, you could breath a sigh of relief and curse that the explosives ever made it on to a plane in the first place. You might react with fear and vow you won't be traveling again anytime soon with all these terrorists just waiting to pounce. Or you might be thinking, "Great! Now how long will security screenings take while they decide to rifle through every item in my suitcase?!"
How are you reacting to Friday's events?
