21 Years Later...We Shall Never Forget

From: Ted Suarez Father Of David S. Suarez
Date: 03/09/2006
Message: David wrote this poem which we found after he died. We believe his words reflect the power of the human spirit to overcome adversity. It has now been translated in to 92 different languages. On 9/11/2002 it was read on the floor of the US House of Representatives by Cogressman Rush Holt. You are free The air is cool, the sky is dark, your muscles relax, while nature’s breath fills your lungs You have accomplished your tasks, felt the pain, and endured the pressure, a pressure so immense that you lived to escape You have climbed to the very peak of the mountain and now relax on a rock, high above the trees while others sleep you are enveloped by nature’s beauty for just a moment you abandon your incarcerated body wholly relinquishing your ties to human nature and for only an instant, you become part of God you are free By David S.

Message: I think of Dave each September 11th since 2001, and often times on other, happier days. He was a member of the high school wrestling team when I was a statistician, and I knew him as a quiet, steady presence with burning intensity and unimpeachable integrity. He was a leader in his own right, and I feel honored to have known him, sorrowful to have lost him. My best to his family members who I know miss him more than words could ever express. We are all with you in grief and in hope for a better future.
