My best friend Kristin Rumberger and I spent a year in Australia from the summer of 1999 until the summer of 2000. After September 11th we received over a dozen emails from friends in Australia worried about our safety and the safety of our family and friends. It was incredibly powerful to receive such words of support and love from halfway around the world. It made us feel that the humanity of the world had been attacked, not just the people of the United States.
