7 years ago at this moment I sat pregnant, stunned with my 4 year old daughter watching what was unfolding in my country... My home. I stumbled across the recording of Kevin's voice today and was transported back to that moment.

I sat here... sobbing as my daughter asked "Mom what's wrong"? I couldn't answer. I was frozen by the terror in Kevin's voice as the tower fell from beneath him. I will never forget it. God Bless You.

First time in 14 years I heard this, I almost wish I didn't listen to it as I cried so hard. I didn't even mean to, just came across it while watching 9/11 videos on YouTube... I'm so sorry, to you Kevin, to your wife and your family. I will never forget your words or what you must have went through... RIP
