Re: 9-11 Sounds of Silence Tribute

Go ahead & cry, Dave. My brother was killed there on that day. He was on the 98th fl of the north tower. That plane came in right on his lap. I'm sure He died before he realized anything was wrong. Its been 18yrs & the wound will never heal. He left a wife & three kids.
But an added pain was being with my mom on that day. At the time they were rerunning the footage over and over of the planes crashing into the towers on TV. We weren't sure if he was there or not at the time. Mom asked me what floor Warren was working on. I said the 98th. She says 'oh my god, he's gone" I say, "mom its too early, we dont know for sure, maybe he's out of town, maybe his train was late, maybe he went out for a pack of butts, maybe this, maybe that". I went on and on. She wouldn't hear any of it. "Don't worry mom, the phone will ring" I pleaded.
She wouldn't listen & looked me right in the eye, sobbing & told me, " A mother knows, I feel what I feel...MY SON HAS BEEN TAKEN FROM ME!"
Unfortunately she was right, the phone never rang. Our mom passed in 2005, going to her eternal rest with the pain of outliving her son.
So go ahead and cry, Dave. One thing you may know by now, when you think you're out of tears, you always manage to find some more.
