American warplanes are striking targets around Kandahar -- as the Taliban flee the city that's been their last major stronghold.
[GRAPHIC=ENDURING FREEDOM]


Officials say Taliban fighters have been surrendering and heading back to their homes.
But many are fleeing the city without surrendering their weapons.
Their supreme leader, Mullah Mohammed Omar, is missing.
The Pentagon MAY know where he's hiding... and says he'll be arrested if found.
Meanwhile, witnesses say some overjoyed Afghan residents have poured out into the streets, carrying pictures of Afghanistan's deposed king.
Others have torn down the Taliban's white flag.

But he says you don't have to let that fear keep you grounded --you can calm that fear --by changing your thoughts.

Doctor Perrott says there are several ways to get over the fear.
First expect the fear --if you expect that when you get to airport you're going to be fearful it puts you in a better position to deal with it.
Second - avoid dwelling on negative thoughts. If you start to do this distract yourself by reading or focusing on pleasant memories.
Thirdly --find ways to relax your body.
For children -- parents can make the difference in helping to calm their fears about flying.
