Project 2996 – Remembering Mr. Paul Joseph Simon

Friday, September 11, 2009

Project 2996 dedicates this day to all the men and women who have lost their lives on 9-11.

Sept 11 is a Day of Remembrance...Let us not forget!

One of the heroes of that day is Mr. Paul Joseph Simon.
Mr. Paul Joseph Simon, a Real Summer’s child:
( The New York Times, Howell Raines, Janny Scott)

He was originally from Queens, 54, an Internet Technology consultant at Marsh and McLennan. He was also a handy guy who loves to work on his house in Staten Island.

Here are some links dedicated to the 9/11 heroes:

Sept 11 is a day we will all remember. We have been affected by it in so many ways.
I still remember that day vividly.
My parents were on the way to the Newark Airport heading to LAX, my in-laws were by WTC. That day was a very long day...
Let’s all pause and offer a prayer to all the men and women who have sacrificed their lives so that we can enjoy the freedom that we have right now. Let us not take for granted any little things ...

And most of all, let us remember the men and women who have lost their lives on that day - in New York, D.C. and Pennsylvania. Let us take a few moments to pause and reflect....

Don't forget to visit:
Washington, D.C. - Pentagon Memorial
"Faith is a knowledge within the heart, beyond the reach of proof.

Wisdom ceases to be wisdom when it becomes too proud to weep, too grave to laugh, and too selfish to seek other than itself.” - Kahlil Gibran

Let us give thanks to our firefighters, cops, service men and women ....
Let us not forget.

  4. Honey, I am glad that you wrote this post. I took many pictures on my way to work during the days and weeks after 9/11.
    I think that some day I will put them in an album. However, I can't bring myself to do it. I was forever changed and am grateful that Dad and I returned home, and that your parents changed their flight to California. I believe that for our family 9/11 is a day of rememberance and a day of rebirth.
    I pray that this new administration will continue the work of President Bush and contine to keep us safe.
    Love you, Mom
