I live in a town in northern New Jersey, about 55 miles from "Ground Zero" in New York City. I don't think anyone can understand the pain we in this area feel.
The reason for my writing you is not about those who were lost, but for those who lived! My wife's uncle and his son were elevator mechanics at the Twin Towers. They are both safe and home. Our brother-in-law had a men's clothing store right across the street from the towers; he too is safe and home. My nephew works for Lehman Brothers in the Financial District; he too is OK.
You see, God did bless America on September 11, 2001 more than anyone can really know.
