My sources, often reliable, sometimes not, indicate increased non-specific chatter mostly pertaining to NYC and vicinity, centering around this Wednesday. Wednesday is a Muslim holiday and the possibility of violence exists as does other dangerous situations. We have been personally advised to be out of NYC on that date by multiple sources, but don't intend to leave. As always we review emergency procedures with our family. It's a good time for all of you to do so as well.
This comes amidst daily protests near the UN, various delegations speaking there these past few days.
I hope this turns out to just be another safety exercise for us.
