  2. I visited NYC for the 1st time in Sept 2008. We visited the the
    temporary memorial, through the sea of faces one stood out to me. Didn’t know who he was but it was like he called out to me. So when I returned a week after the permanent site opened to the public we
    attended. I wondered if I would recognize him and of course yes I did. But this time I know what an amazing person Carl Bini was and so pleased to see with his foundation he still is helping in so many
    ways. Why did this man touch me? I’m unsure of that but I can say with confidence that he is ok. God bless Carl Bini and all who loved him on this 15th anniversary of 911.
