Ad Memorium Carl Asaro

Carl Asaro chose to be a protector, a defender. He chose to enter the heart of darkness to try to save others on September 11, 2001. Because of men and women like Carl, the people of this great country now look very differently on those who willingly risk everything for their safety and well being.

I cannot pay tribute to Carl without also honoring his 343 brethren firefighters who gave their lives on that terrible day. If he’s reading this, and I believe he is, he’s smiling approvingly right now.

Other very important people made great sacrifices on 9 11 and I honor them as well. God bless and keep you Helozia, loving wife, and children; Philip, Carl Jr., Matthew, Rebecca and Marc. Your Father loves you and always remember, (John 15:13) “No one has greater love than this, to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.”

2,996 lost their lives on 9/11, never forget.

I honored Carl Asaro in 1996 and am so pleased to see him honored again this year. I feel as if he is family now. a link to my blog from then
