Message: I did not know you, but I wrote something on my blog in honor of your memory: Five years ago today, the United States began the day very routinely, with people going to work, heading away on airplanes for business, taking kids to school, reading the paper, or watching the news with a cup of coffee. A young man named Leonard M. Castrianno also started his day in a routine way. Leonard was a broker with the firm Cantor Fitzgerald, 30 years old and known as a friendly, sociable person who loved his family very much. Leonard lived in Williamsburg, Brooklyn and was eternally optimistic on life. Like 2,996 other victims that day, Leonard died at the hands of 19 Islamic terrorists, funded and trained by Osama Bin Laden's network, Al Qaida. Leonard died in the World Trade center where he worked, trapped on the 105th floor and unable to escape because of the fire and damage to the building that occurred when the passenger jet loaded with fuel and passengers slammed into it on that sunny morning. Leonard left behind two loving parents, a twin sister Leigh, and another sister Lynn. The love between the family members is very evident by the words of his mother: "Dear Leonard, Thank you for being my son. You were always a perfect son to me. Your love for you family was beyond anyone but you to achieve. Your love for your sister Carolyn, always being there for her. The lunches and the weekends picking he up or taking her home. Your love and closeness for your twin sister Leigh and your love and respect for your sister Lynn. Your love and respect for me (your mother). The good times we had visiting you in NYC and the great dinners and plays will always be remembered. The first class treatment you gave us. You are greatly missed and loved." FOREVER IN MY HEART MOM His father similarly left touching words in a memorial to his only son: "Dear Son, I keep going back to that wonderful evening we spent together on October 11th 2000. You sent the limo for me, gave me my 1st subway ride even though I had lived in NYC for ten years earlier. Then going to Ben Bensons for dinner, sitting and talking until almost midnight. I was so happy and proud of you that night I went back and woke up some of my associates to brag. I miss and love you so much and don't stop thinking of you or bragging about you. Love Dad" May God keep and comfort Leonard Castrianno's family, may He touch the hearts of all those who loved and lost on September 11th, 2001. May He protect America from danger, evil, and enemies within and abroad. Let us live like Leonard did, with an endlessly positive view on life, with open friendliness, and loving like we have nothing to lose.God bless Leonard, and God bless America.
