Life isn't about how to survive the storm, but how to dance in the rain!

Tuesday, September 05, 2006


Next Monday is September 11th. As part of the "2996 Project" I made a committment to memorialize two of the people who died so tradgically in the terrorist attack that day. Two people whom I did not know but wish I had. I will post about their lives on 9/11. Their names are Laurence M. Polatsch and Anthony Edward Gallagher, both worked at Cantor Fitzgerald on the 105th Floor of the World Trade Center.

This week is also going to be hard for me as well because I lost many friends and co-workers that day and will be attending remembrance services for some. My company's main office was located there. I was on vacation that day. For that I am grateful. But I ask that you keep in your thoughts and prayers all those who were lost that day.

That day is one of maybe 6 days in my life that I know exactly what I was doing and where I was at. I shall never forget. I do not believe any day in the history of this country has anything so totally effected the world as that day. I support you in your endeavor to keep the memories alive of those lost.

Thank you for your big heart full of love and caring.

Later Yall...

I worked for myself back then and will always remember not being able to leave the television for at least that first week.

I flew to a family reunion in Maine at the end of July, 2001. We had a layover in Newark and got to fly right past the twin towers on our way up the coast. We had the foresight to get our camera out before take off and snapped a great picture of them.

The life of everyone who was in this country that day was forever changed. Everyone touched in any way by that day will be in my prayers.

It's hard to imagine way out here how many people where you are lost someone they knew.

As an ex-pat New Yorker (and human being,) this anniversary is always terrible for me, too. The events of that day changed all of us and the world in ways that wouldn't have seemed possible. Now we know that ANYthing is possible, and that safety is a myth because there is such intense hatred in the world.

The second greatest challenge we face, after trying to protect ourselves and our loved ones, is in trying not to become so full of hatred ourselves that we become like them.

I look forward to reading your memorializations of Mr. Polatsch and Mr. Gallagher.
