Nearly 25,000 people gathered to display their patriotism by creating a human flag Saturday morning at Tucson Electric Park. Pictures of the flag will be made into postcards to be sent to the families in and around New York City, and will be put onto a billboard in New York City as a way to display Arizona's support for the victims.

"This is a testimony to the caring nature of our community, it's overwhelming. I've never worked in a community where people respond as quickly as they have and I've been in this field for over 30 years."
-Richard White, executive director of the Southern Arizona chapter of the American Red Cross

"Both of our faiths preach peace. No person who committed these acts is a member of either of our religions."
- Rabbi Thomas Loucheim

"We're here to provide a service, not just collect fines and give citations."
- Gary Thomson, associate director of Parking and Transportation Services regarding the free shuttle to the TCC Blood Drive provided by UA Parking and Transportation

I think it's good that people here show respect and express that they care. It's really bringing everyone together."
- Rahul Batra, business junior

"We've been fielding phone calls, covering the information for people while they're in class, and we're not anticipating any problems. UAPD has been wonderful. We're open and have been encouraging people to come down." - Michelle Blumberg, director of Hillel

"I speak today not as a Catholic or as a Christian, but as a member of the human race. And I must tell you that these have been very hard days for people on our campus in fear of their safety, who hide in their rooms in fear."
- UA President Peter Likins, addressing a University of Arizona-sponsored prayer service Wednesday.

"I'm not going to change my daily routine. (The terrorist act) shows the person who did it had no understanding of his religion. The act that has taken place is totally against humanity. The person who did it had no feelings at all."
- Jassem Khan, official treasurer of the Muslim Student Association.
