    • Amanda's quote concerning the tragic events of September 11, 2001:
      It has taken a few days to process the events of Tuesday. Let us pray that the response to this is one of learning. We have the opportunity as a collective global conscience to move now towards peace. This is our wake up call. We must weigh our options carefully with foresight and with grace. I hope that people pray for positive change and for peace. I pray for the victims and their families. I pray for to why this happened and what we are to learn from this. I pray for hope, and for thinking with "reason", and for compassion. I pray that as a global community we keep our hearts open. I pray that no more innocent people are killed or have their lives torn apart by hate and ignorance. We CAN affect change if we keep believing in the sanctity of human life and if we do not become purveyors of violence. I pray that you all find peace and joy in your lives and in your hearts.

  • Amanda Tapping is a really great actress.

    Amanda Tapping is a really great actress. When I first started to watch Stargate SG-1 she was the main reason. She is just so great at acting and is just captivating. To me she is the main character of the show. I don't really like watching Stargate Atlantis but I started to watch it when Amanda became a main person in the show. When they replaced her I stopped watching it unless one of the SG-1 people were on it. The main reason I stated to watch Sanctuary is because Amanda was in it. It is a really good show that I am glad she is apart of. She has got to be one the most beautiful woman I have ever seen. She looks good with dark hair but she is absolutely stunning with blond hair. Also I like it better when she has short hair but she looks good with long hair as well. I have never met her but she seems like a really nice person that is really funny. I hope to see her more often in movies and TV shows.moreless
