Beams of light mark the spot of the missing towers.


Although this is a food site, it is much more than that we are a Global Community and each of us is expierencing saddness on the anniversary of that tragedy against all mankind 6 years ago on 9-11.


We all were deeply touched that day and the days following and weeks following instilling fear in most.  We as a family were deeply touched by this tragedy taking several friends and nearly taking some others that fateful day.  We all know someone who knew someone who knew someone lost that day.


I ask that we each in our way have a moment of silence in memory of all those lost and their families.  Someone is without a husband, wife, mother, father, brother, sister, cousin, friend after that day six years ago.

Each of us will never forget where we were and what we were doing when the first plane, then the second hit the World Trade Center, and then the following hours of tragedy at the pentagon and the plane crashing in a field in PA.

Loss of human life is the saddest event in the life-span of any human being. When it comes to pre-matured and innocent people then the sorrow is never ending. May God give strength to relative of martyrs and prudence to those who are propagating such heinous brutality against humanity.
