    My Story

    In 2001 I was a college student, just turned 18 a few months before, living on my own for the first time. The weather had been getting cooler, the days were pleasant. I remember the day before 9-11, thinking how my moms birthday was coming up soon, and about the new series I was...

    Her Name Is Alicia

    She was in her early twenties, and had the most beautiful smile. I only knew her a short time. What I do remember is her happiness. She always seemed happy and so full of life. Alicia worked for me as a server in my restaurant. Like a lot of twenty-somethings she seemed young and...

    Poem: God's Towers

    Two shadows cast up above, two towers that once stood tall, stand yet even higher. Angels now fill the rooms. God loves his workers that fly about, happy and content with eternal peace. Watchful eyes peer past the clouds, as tears fall through the transparent...

    9/11

    I don't think we will ever forget 9/11.  A tragedy beyond. I hope I'm wrong and something tells me, this is far from being over.  (I don't mean to scare anyone but I just feel something's up!).  Do you feel something too or not at all?

    Sadness

    I went to visit Ground Zero on Sunday.  I think that it is a fitting memorial to those that perished.  It seemed very quiet and respectful on Sunday.  It is with deep sadness that this happened nine years ago.   We live only 15 miles from Ground Zero...

    I Passed By My Old Apartment, A Block Away From Ground Zero

    I passed by my old apartment downtown yesterday, a block away from the old WTC site. For my last year there, there wasn’t a day when I didn’t have a face off with tourists crowding the sidewalk or suits and ties making the mad dash to work. So much so that I almost forgot...

    We Will Never Forget

    I am  not here to hear about conspiracies or anything else today. I am here to remember. Remember the lives lost and the promises made. We made a promise! Alas for many in this life promises are made only to be forgotten. There are no degrees of honesty. You are or you...

    I Slept Through It

    That's right. I was asleep when the attacks took place. I am a night shift worker so I sleep during the mornings and got up at 1 pm. When I did, I merely got dressed, got into my car and drove off to stop by at my father's place before going to work. I did not turn on my car...
