Never Forget

Eugueni Kniazev
December 11, 1954-September. 11, 2001

Something better.

After leaving Siberia almost 20 years ago, Mr. Kniazev found his "something better" in New York City, where he was proud to live in the United States and planned to become a citizen someday.

He began life in his new home working as a dishwasher, but slowly made his way through the food service world, and in January of 2001 accepted the position of facilities manager at the Windows on the World restaurant. Mr. Kniazev's new job took him to the 107th floor of the World Trade Center's North Tower. He told family that he tried not to worry about the potential for a terrorist attack on what he knew was the center of the financial world.

Eugeni was happy being in such an important part of the world. A family member said that Eugeni felt he was truly an American in the best American city.

Words like honest, hard working, bright, articulate, impressive and upbeat have been used to describe Eugueni Kniazev. Family, friends and coworkers alike feel the loss since his murder on September 11, 2001.

He was a good man. He was a dreamer. He came to us for something better.

Never forget.

Brief Hiatus

Due to a recent trip to the evil sadistic oral surgeon, this blog will be a little quieter for the remainder of the week.

Actually, it isn't completely due to extractions.

As the primary poster here I have recently found myself feeling overwhelmed, disillusioned and somewhat beaten when it comes to our political world. I feel hopeless at the moment, and not all that interested in fighting a fight I feel cannot be won at this time. When something as stupid as "Plamegate" finally hits the fan and one or two of the players involved in the lies are ones I HAD great respect for ... well, it takes a toll on how I feel toward my government, and right now how I feel is less than pleased, and not at all secure or able to believe a single word anyone in D.C. utters. I feel the need to step back and reevaluate my views, something I recommend for everyone now and then.

In the meantime, keep yourself amused with The Absurd Report. They post every day, and will keep you informed, amused and ready to fight the fights that need fighting.

Also, take a look at what Stop the ACLU is uncovering. There is always work to be done when it comes to stopping the ACLU. THIS is a particularly important page to visit.

See you all next week.
