9/11 : You remember, don’t you? You remember exactly where you were when you heard the sad news. It was said with such a terrible impact it was hardly believable and yet so believable. How could anyone do that?
We have many friends in New York City, what a frustrating time to try to get a hold of them by phone. They were crying, we were shocked, after three days they were all accounted for, all alive. What a relief, what a blessing. Oh, our hearts break, still today for all those lives lost.
A personal friend of Gilbert, is Michael Lamonico, the head chef for the restaurant Windows on the World, on the 107th floor of the World Trade Center. He lost so many people he cared about. Lost all the people he worked with on a day to day basis. He is alive because he had an eye doctor appointment on the lower levels that day. He can hardly take it in, he is alive and everyone else is gone.
This post is a tribute and a memorial for all those who lost their lives, all the ordinary people, all the fire fighters, all the families, for every single person who was affected that day because of a senseless act against innocent people.
We remember you all…your memory is forever etched in our hearts.
