I remember where I was on that day, and I hope everyone does. My heart still breaks for these people and thier familes, and I hope God is with them always. My daughter was very tiny when this happened, and I know she will not remember it, so I am creating my own book for her so that she will have something to remind her. The victims and heroes of September 11th will never be forgotten.

As is the case with many people, someone I knew was lost on that terrible day.
My cousin Paul Barbaro, worked for Cantor Fitzgerald. He was a very kind, funny, intelligent person. He was taken from this world, which he made a better place, by a sadistic fiend.
Anyway, as we come into the fifth anniversary of the attack, I don't feel this is of significance, because the loss of my cousin Is as difficult as it was the day this tragic event happened.
All I hope for is now that there will be no more screw ups and cover ups, ( what else can we expect from politicians?), and all the people who desperatly need help will get it. Finally, let's get this memorial built. I would like to see it done before I reach retirement.
My thoughts are with Paul's family, and I feel for all the people who have lost someone as I have on that dark day. I know Paul is with my dad, and all the people we lost along the way. But that makes it no less difficult to deal with.

God Bless all the victims of that day, their families, friends and colleagues. And Bless all those who gave their lives to save others as well as all of those STILL putting their lives on the line in Iraq and around the world to ensure that something like this never happens again. Our hearts are with you always. Canadians salute you.
