American Students Trapped in Lebanon

This is quite a scary situation for them. MSNBC reports on their condition. "Joanne Nucho thought she would be spending her summer in a safe Western-style city when she headed off to Beirut, Lebanon, to study Arabic as part of her doctoral program at UCLA. But suddenly she finds herself huddled in a college dormitory with 40 other Americans, trapped in the middle of an undeclared war and fearing for her life."

I've known Joanne since we were both toddlers. She's a very bright girl and extremely resourcesful. If there is anybody there that can weather this storm it's Joanne. I just hope mine and my families prayers get answered and she gets evacuated and brought home soon.
