Many people were looking at the big screens in the departure lounge crying in shock on there phones calling people in NYC most of the air crew's felt silent in watching what had happened. There were many police officers and army here at Atlanta with Automatic rifle weapons searching looking at everyone.

Man what a shocking thing to happen.
