With no insult to those who passed on; permit me to wish my brother Happy Birthday! That is the importance of today.
Today at the reading of the names of those who died on 9/11, there was one young boy’s remembrance that I will never forget.
“My father, Sebastian Gorki, who I never met, because I was in my mom’s belly. I love you, Father. I love you for loving the idea of having me. You gave me the gift of life and I wish you could be here to enjoy it with me.”
(Young boy’s remembrance starts at 2:00)
