The world is round and the place which may seem like the end may also be the beginning. ~ Ivy Baker Priest
Isn't the internet an amazing thing? I re-posted yesterday the 9/11 tribute I wrote a couple of years ago for one of the victims who died at the World Trade Center. I saw her name scroll across the bottom of the TV screen yesterday as the names of all the victims were broadcast. Eskedar Melaku. It was such a strange emotion I felt. I didn't know her personally but I almost feel like I did. This afternoon I went to check the comments that were waiting for publication on my blog and I found this one:
"Eskedar was my friend since 1st grade. She was one of a kind. I miss her so much. The last time I saw her was exactly one year before 911. Rest in Peace Esku! Miss you some much!"
The person who wrote this didn't leave their name but if they ever come back I want them to know how much I appreciated what they had to say. Because by researching and reading about Miss Melaku I'd learned that too...that she was one of a kind. And even tho I never truly did know her, I miss her, too.
