"Get Outta Here, Father."

FR. STEVE KATSOUROS, SJ, was on the subway commuting to his job at St. Peter's Prep in Jersey City from his Jesuit community on 83rd Street in New York when the first plane hit. His train halted abruptly at Fulton Street, just two blocks from the World Trade Center. He emerged from below into a catastrophic situation unlike any New York has ever experienced. Although a bit disoriented, he pulled aside a police officer and immediately offered his assistance. She and Steve were standing at the concourse entrance of the WTC as a sea of people evacuated the building. The pandemonium grew. The officer told him, "Get outta here, Father."

Hey, possibly this post is not on topic but in any event, I have been browsing about your site and it looks really neat. It is easy to see I am creating a new blog and I am struggling to make it look great, and supply excellent subject matter. I have learned a lot here and I look forward to additional updates and will be returning.
