September 11th

On Sunday September 11th 2005 I walked past the TV tuned to one of the local channels broadcasting people reciting the names of those who passed away four years ago. Today in my daily review of the blogs I opened up an old co-workers blog and began reading. Ted Villa and I worked together at Euro. On Sunday he posted blogs at the exact same times as each incident from 2001 - 8:46 am, 9:03 am, 10:05 am, 10:10 am and 10:28 am.

Nothing touched me more than his posting of an email he sent out to friends and loved ones on September 15th. Ted had shared some of his recounts of the incident with me after the attacks. We had different visual perspectives, his from a roof top in Brooklyn and mine from across the river in Hoboken.

Here is the URL to his site with the posting of the email. Its touching and definitely worth reading.

Thanks for the comments on my most recent post. I'd be remiss if I didn't give you props for this 9/11 posting. Your friend's e-mails brings me right back to that morning and how I felt in the days and months after. It was very well written.

Wish you could have made it down to Austin, those last minute trips are what it's all about. I only made it cause I found the cheap fare.
