September 11th~Let Us Never Forget

Mary Teresa Caulfield...a wife, mother, daughter, sister and an aunt was among those who lost their lives in the North Tower of the World Trade Center that sunny and clear morning, September 11, 2001. She was excutive assistant working in her office at Marsh & McLennan, an insurance company.

On September 11, 2002 one of my co-workers went to the Y before she came into the office. As she entered the Y there was a table that held business size cards of tributes to the victims of 09-11-01. Julia gathered up enough of them for those of us at work and when she came in she stopped at each desk to let us take a card. I chose Mary Teresa Caulfield because she was very close to my age.
Mary Teresa you would be 66 years old now, you probably would be retired and maybe have taken that first dream vacation with your husband, James. But all those dreams were cut short in an instant by a senseless act of a few. A senseless act of hatred, that most of the people in this world still can't understand.
I still carry that little green card with your name and the fact that you were confirmed dead in the World Trade Center that day~that horrible day, Septmeber 11, 2001.
And to the family and friends of Mary Teresa.....please know that as long I live, I will carry this card with me.....I will pray that God continues to comfort you and bring you peace as the years go by.
May we never forget those who left us that day and may we never forget those who brought about this horrible event.

A lovely tribute! All those people who are her loved ones are probably especially thinking of her today and missing her so much. Thank you for posting this. I put mine in my public journal and put a link to it in my private journal.
