He will stand before God for judgment.
I thought of the people on Flight 93, who took the plane down before it could hit another building, and of the firefighters and police in the building.
I think of two people especially. One, Welles Remy Crowther, was an equities trader working in one of the towers, but he was also a volunteer firefighter in a nearby suburb. He ran up and down the stairs several times, guiding people out. He died when the towers fell, aged 24.
Another, Abe Zelmanowitz, remained in the building because his best friend, in a wheelchair, couldn't get out.
Those two men have been special beacons to me through these years, and I think of them tonight, because they served light and not darkness.
