a tribute to those who lost their lives on 9-11.
union square subway station.

two of my brothers helping with the rescue.  another brother was working right across the street from the trade centers.  when i saw the plane crash i called him to see what happened.  he told me he looked out his window & saw a ticker tape parade & wondered why.  he quickly realized otherwise.  he managed to escape the horror by jumping on a boat that took him over to nj.

“i thank you God.”

  4. Thanks for sharing this and for stopping by at my post tribute today. I never thought about the connection to a NY ticker tape parade. A sad irony. Glad your brother escaped the melee that day.
