ABOUT TOMMY, MATT, AND GLENN FROM HOPKINS UNIVERSITY
| September 11th was hard enough-
watching planes crashing into two of the most fascinating buildings in
the world, knowing that so many people perished in those buildings as they
came tumbling down. And then yesterday I picked up the Johns Hopkins Alumni
magazine... And there amongst the seven people that died from the Johns
Hopkins community- were three of my good college friends... The World Trade
Center tragedy happened all over again for me yesterday.
Glenn Wall, Matthew O'Mahoney,
and Thomas Cahill were friends of mine in College- where we spent many
hours at college events, parties, or just hanging out around the two schools.
(They went to Hopkins, and I went to Goucher) Matt and Glenn were always
hanging out on my floor at Goucher- Lewis, 3rd floor. Since Matt was dating
my friend Allison at the time. And Tommy... Well he was a very good friend
of mine- he and his brother Jimmy were best friends with the infamous Rob-
who was my favorite man on campus all four years that I attended Goucher.
(Hello Rob) So I spent hours with Tommy, Jimmy, Joe, and Rob watching tv
(sports), studying, or hanging out at PJ's Pub, or the Ratt. Those were
certainly the days.
Glenn, Matt, and Tommy- God
bless you, may you rest in peace. I know your memories will always be greatly
remembered and cherished. We will never forget you- you will be remembered
as heroes to our country- and we will win back peace and freedom for this
beautiful country that we live in, and for your memories. You will
always be my personal heroes, now. For my heart is filled with a
much greater sorrow than ever before. Love forever, Elena

"...Jim Cahill says his brother
and the others lost in the attacks should be remembered as patriots. "There
are no words that can capture this for the country, let alone for each
family. It's an act of evil. But hopefully these people who have sacrificed
their lives will save the lives of millions. They are all heroes." Especially
Tom, adds Jim. "I was proud to be his brother."

issue of the Johns Hopkins Magazine
Matt O'Mahoney, and Glen Wall
Matt O'Mahoney, and Glen Wall
were best friends in college in the mid 1980's at Hopkins University, and
continued to be best friends after college when they both got jobs at Canter
Fitzgerald in the World Trade Centers. Both have wonderful, touching
tributes about their lives in the New York Times. I love the story
about Matt, and his relationship with his wife- and about the horse.
He was such a charismatic person. And Glen was so sweet- always willing
to listen to you!
God BLESS you both... My thoughts and prayers are with you, and your
families. I will always treasure those moments I've spent with you-
and now you will always be remembered as American Heroes...

Angel was my favorite contestant
on the Reality based series "A Murder In Small Town X", and he had
actually won the show! But he was such a wonderful person, and dedicated
fireman, that he went right back to work- in New York City, and his fire
station was one of the first ones on the scene of the World Trade Centers
on September 11th, 2001. God Bless You, Sweet Angel...
You're one of my HEROES, and will never be forgotten...
Love forever, Elena

I didn't know Nicole Miller,
but I was very touched by her memorial. She was so young, and beautiful.
And being so close to the age of our Jamie's Way audience- I felt it would
be good to add our own tribute for her here. This was an attack on
America- not on our government, but on our people- people of all ages.
We must always remember the victims of September 11th, and do our
best to prevent this from ever happening again. May God bless you,
Nicole. Our thoughts, and prayers are with you, and your wonderful
family. You will always be remembered as an American Hero....
