To my knowledge, “just” one person I knew perished on September 11. I’m glad it wasn’t more, but even one person was too much to lose.
Josh Aron was the boyfriend of a good friend in college. They eventually parted and I lost touch with Josh. I was so sad to learn of his death. Years later, I remember his bright blue eyes, and the devilish gleam that would appear in them when teasing us, his girlfriend’s friends. I hope his family knows that Josh will never be forgotten.
