9/11/01 Ten Years Later

Ten years ago today was one of the worst days of my life and the worst day in the history of America. For all Americans, but especially for those of us who worked in the World Trade Center or knew anyone who passed away on September 11, 2001; today is always a difficult day to get through. For me, it is extremely important to always remember my good friends and countless former colleagues who did pass away that horrible horrible morning and be extremely thankful for those who survived and are still with us; including one of my very best friends, Mike, who is here with me in Romania right now. To one of my all time favorite people Stergie-I miss you always brother; also Monique; Billy-the Cubs are still awful!; Lynn, my eSpeed/Cantor Fitzgerald team, the incredibly brave FDNY, NYPD and everyone else who passed away during that awful day and since fighting for our country abroad. You guys are always in my thoughts and will never be forgotten-your spirit lives on forever and touches me each day. I truly cannot believe it’s been ten years; it seems like yesterday.

  1. Lee, 9/11 is the worst day of our short lives, no doubt. But the worst day in US history could be the battle of Sharpsburg/Antietam, which claimed approx 23,000 American casualties w/ 3650+ deaths (don’t forget, you lived fairly close to this site). Pearl Harbor is another terrible day that killed 2400. America also lost 2500 military on D-Day.

  2. I guess the “worst” is always subjective, its quite reasonable to think 9/11 has been the worst day in US history, when you witnessed it.
