New survivor sites are springing up to help those caught in todays terrorist attacks to signal family members that they are alive.
A site at safe.millennium.edu gives users the opportunity to input their names and a short message and offers a search engine to those looking for loved ones.
Another site at www.shunn.net/okay has already posted hundreds of messages from survivors of the attacks and concerned bystanders.
Pat Hardy of Long Island posted: “Made it out. Im alive and well.”
Steve Azueta of Manhattan wrote: “I was supposed to be at work on 9th street, but was running late. Im safe at home with my wife and 6 yr old.”
Another poster, Ann Lewis of Bronx, NY, wrote: “Im fine and hubbys ok. Glad I was laid off. I would have been right in the middle of it.”
And a waggish Jonathan Bennett wrote: “I heard Sharon called Bush and told him to show some restraint. “
Many others offered condolences from around the world.
