I know today's going to be a great day, but this one always starts out rather somber. On my drive in to work, like on every September 11, I flipped to "Fox News Channel" on Sirius/XM. They start with reading the names of the victims of the 9-11 terroristic tragedy. My drive is about 10-12 minutes. I started with a last name beginning in Am. I finished with a last name beginning with Bo. It's amazing how many perished on that day that it takes 10 minutes to go through just one letter of the alphabet. Anyway, it's impossible for me to honor all of the men and women who perished on 9/11/2001. So instead, let me just honor one of them - the man whose name was the last one I heard on the radio before exiting my car this morning. Colin Arthur Bonnett www.legacy.com/sept11/story.aspx?personid=100774 Each soul has a story. This is just one of them. I cannot comprehend the true extend of loss faced with 9-11. It is because of this that I just pray to God for their souls, their families and other loved ones. Only He knows and comprehends the true extent of loss and only He can heal such hurt. God Bless the men and women lost on that day - and God Bless the public safety heroes - the Firefighters, First Responders and Police that lost their lives helping as many as they could to survive. And most of all, God Bless this great nation!
To Colin's family - I am a stranger, just a guy from Pittsburgh who went to a memorial service on the one-year anniversary of the attacks and picked up a flag with Colin's name on it. I just want you to know that there are people out here who continue to pray for you. I never met Colin, but I wish I would have. Like you, I hope to see him in heaven someday.

There is not a day that goes by that my heart doesn't go out to the Bonnett family. Colin was a genuine fabulous GENTLEMAN that you couldn't help but like. God Bless his parents for bringing such a wonderful person to us. It was a pleasure knowing him and he is truly missed.
