In Loving Memory

My great-great-grandfather, Abraham Van Orden, was Harbor Master of New York in 1851.

He could not have imagined that his city would look like this 150 years later (in August 2001, when this photo was taken).

In 2012, I can still barely comprehend that our city no longer looks like this, ever since 9/11/2001. This September, as every September since that day, my heart and prayers go out to families, loved ones, and neighbors of Americans who died that tragic day. May we always hold their memories dear, and honor the devotion of our countrymen who came to serve in dire times. May God bless America.
