The Tao of Politics

One of my main concerns is: how can I make a difference? There are thousands of political blogs out there. It’s easy to get lost in that ocean. So I may blog about politics on occasion, or I may blog about health issues, depending on where my interests lead me, and where I feel I can contribute something of significance.

9/11 Tribute
Alejandro Castano, 35, Englewood, N.J.





Much has been written about Alejandro Castano who died five years ago at the World Trade Center. Here are some resources where you can read previous tributes, some by people who actually know him and love him:


New York Times

CNN

September 11, 2001 Victims

United in Memory Quilt

9/11 Heroes


I don’t feel that I can really add anything to what has been said and written before, but I can remember Alejandro Castano on this day; we can all remember Alejandro; and I can offer this song, One Day in September, in remembrance and tribute. Alejandro, you are honored, remembered and loved. Forever.

    Thank you also participating in this project. I too did not know my tribute person, but felt obligated to write something. Thank you for the song.

    A very nice tribute. Let us not forget those who died and the families left to live life without them. We shall remember the day the world cried. We shall remember a day that the whole world mourned together. We shall remember September 11th as more than just a number thanks to the 9/11 tribute started by D.Challener Roe.
