You are right in one respect that next year and thereafter I am going 9-11 light, it is too hard on me to drag myself through it all. I was another Aon employee who marched 100 plus flights down that day but when it comes to this day, I do wish Chicago, or London now, would do it some service. I am glad he is still employed at Aon. You have my warm wishes for a good life. I shall now poke my head in here once in a while,
Gee, ever visit Omaha Beach or the Punchbowl Cemetary? Try the Arizona someday. I am moved emotionally when I visit these places and do not know, personally, one individual therein myself. To say that Case is that in-human and non-caring is amazing indeed. I guess McKinsey does not teach emotive values at all. Only numbers. Hey, all time high.
Case and others have always been quiet about this painful subject. I keep the 2001 annual report on my shelf and Pat Ryan wrote eloquently about the loss of the people, not colleagues, on that day. But Case has been most circumspect on this issue, and the long standing joke about a moment of silence while eating a Krispy Kreme donut has some truth into it. There remains a glass monument to the Towers at 199 Water Street and a plaque with all 176 names on it - one spelled wrong as I remember. I have also long been angry that the moment of silence at 10:29 is the wrong time, 9:59 is when the South Tower collapsed. It is a shame indeed.
