My Heart Aches For All Those Who Lost Their Lives
Ayleen and I met while working for the same company. I was laid off and she went on to work for Blue Cross/Blue Shield. The week before Sept. 11th I received a call with an offer to work for the same company since Ayleen had gotten a promotion. I accepted the offer but later that day called back and turned it down because it was a short term position and I was looking for something full time/long term. If I would have accepted the position, I too would have lost my life since they wanted me to start Sept. 10th. Not a day goes by that I don't think about the tragedy and how close I came to being another fatality. My heart aches for all those who lost their lives as well as Ayleen who left behind a young daughter in high school and a young son. They will be in my prayers always.
