Burbank residents sought out different ways to react to Tuesday's terrorist activities at the World Trade Center and at the Pentagon. Some attended prayer vigils, some stocked up on supplies at the local surplus store and others took part in moments of silence for the thousands who have perished. Many residents have taken comfort in hanging American flags outside their homes and around the city. The 14 or more houses along the 1200 block of North Lima Street in Burbank were lined with American flags, and neighbors shared concerns with each other about the tragic events that occurred this week.

Gary Moskowitz BURBANK -- Bill Aupperlee, a World War II veteran and survivor of the attack on Pearl Harbor, is mad. Aupperlee, like many Americans, was overcome with anger when he learned of terrorist strikes on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon last week. "They have awakened a sleeping giant," Aupperlee said of America. And as the nation prepares itself for retaliation against those responsible for the terrorist acts, Aupperlee is confident in the offensive power of our military.

Amber Willard and Tim Willert BURBANK -- Area legislators reacted to Tuesday's terrorist attacks with equal amounts of shock and sadness. Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Burbank) was leaving his home in Washington when he heard about the World Trade Center attacks in New York. By the time he got to work, everyone was flooding out of the building. "Everyone was trying to get out of the Capitol," Schiff said in a telephone interview Tuesday morning from a room at the Capitol Police headquarters, where he planned to spend the day working.

I grew up in the Bay Ridge section of Brooklyn. In our home, my favorite room was a bookshelf-lined study that overlooked Upper Bay, New York Harbor, the Statue of Liberty and the tip of lower Manhattan. My father, who was a musician, kept all of his instruments in that room, and it was there that he practiced and recorded. I spent a great deal of my childhood in that room, losing myself for hours, daydreaming, drawing, writing and reading. Some of my most fond memories are of rainy afternoons, when I would sit in a window seat in that room and look out toward the choppy bay while my father played his clarinet.

It seems like yesterday when hate changed the world. But it forgot about the strength of the human spirit. As we sat stunned and helpless in front of TVs on that fateful Sept. 11 six years ago, fear and misery seemed to have gotten the better hand. But from the rubble of the World Trade Center towers, a blackened field in Pennsylvania and the smoke billowing from the Pentagon grew unity, compassion, courage, prayer, humility and love — the best of humanity. That’s why on Tuesday, as the world remembers those lost to hate, we also reflect on what it gained because of love.

BURBANK ? Five years after the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, heightened preparedness and caution continue to pervade the air travel and public safety climate. The events of Sept. 11, 2001, have had lasting effects on what goes on every day in airports nationwide. And airport security provisions continue to evolve along with terror alert forecasts and international events. When television screens at the Bob Hope Airport broadcast live footage that fateful morning of two airplanes crashing into the World Trade Center in New York, passengers were already inside the terminal, waiting for their morning flights, airport spokesman Victor Gill said.

Airport security tightened in Burbank and long-held emotions were cut loose in Glendale as news surfaced Sunday that U.S. Navy Special Forces had killed Osama bin Laden in Pakistan. Burbank physician Yeneneh Betru died in the 9/11 attacks on American Airlines Flight 77, the plane that crashed into the Pentagon. After the attack, a clinic in Betru's name was established in Addis Ababa, the capital of his native Ethiopia. Dottie Price, director of clinical programs at North Hollywood's IPC The Hospitalist Company, worked closely with Betru, traveling with him to interview newly hired doctors to generate educational materials.

Six years ago, Dr. Stephen Yacoubian raced toward St. Vincent Medical Center as fighter jets pierced the sky, smoky debris filled the air and the World Trade Center crumbled in Lower Manhattan. Running against the tide, Yacoubian walked into the hospital near the World Trade Center to a scene of “unimaginable carnage that was horrible and devastating.” “It was like I was walking in a dream,” the orthopedic surgeon said Tuesday, the sixth anniversary of the Sept.

The Burbank Leader hit the streets on the eve of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attack anniversary to ask pedestrians and local shop patrons: "How have the attacks changed your life and life in America?" and "Where were you when you found out the World Trade Center was attacked?" "For me, it seems like the general public has been on the edge. I was at home, I just turned on the news and I thought it was a fire. I didn't realize that it was a plane crash; I saw the second plane crash and then I knew there was something going on."

Horrific, monstrous, devastating, shocking ? unifying ? all of these words describe the events of five years ago Monday, but none alone can capture the essence of it. It's been five years since men filled with hate turned airplanes into missiles in an attack on our freedom that shook the nation's core. On Monday we pause to remember those who paid the ultimate price for that freedom ? the victims of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. Many say it was a defining moment in U.S. history, a defining moment for a generation.
