From my office window, I have wonderful view of a large swath of sky. Many times, I have reveled in the sight of four or five airplanes flying within my field of vision at the same time. With Dulles International, Washington National and Baltimore-Washington International airports all in close proximity, it's a pretty common occurrence.
I don't know why I enjoy this so much. It's probably equal parts wanderlust and awe at the wonders of our modern world.
As I sit here today, I'm scanning the empty sky outside my window. I'm waiting to see just one commercial jet soar across the blue, a proclamation our strength and hope.

In case any of this site's visitors are concerned for my safety in the midst of this national crisis, given my proximity to Washington DC, I just want to assure you that I'm absolutely fine.
Now is not the time for comment, even if I could form a coherent thought on the subject at this moment. All we can do is stay calm and keep all those affected by the tragedy in our thoughts. The one concrete thing we can do at this time is give blood, and I strongly urge everyone who can to do so.
