John McErlean Jr.
This is a tribute to John McErlean who lost his life at the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001.
Five years later, I still have trouble seeing images of that day without getting tears in my eyes.
It is amazing to me that anyone in the name of any god could, with clear conscience, do such a horrific deed.
I did not know John McErlean, but from what I read about him, makes me very sad for his family. You may read the profile that was printed in the New York Times on December 21, 2001 here.
From these few paragraphs, I am able to discern that he lived his life how we should all strive to live.
To your family, I cannot imagine the loss you feel, although I can feel some of your pain.
Rest in peace John McErlean, God has his hand on your family.
Here is a list of all the names and locations of the tributes to the fallen victims.
