I remember Thomas Joseph Fisher. He was 36 years old, born November 15, 1964. He lived in Union, NJ. He had a wife, two boys, and a girl. Today, five years ago, he was at work in 2 World Trade Center as the vice president for operations, Fiduciary Trust International. He worked on the 97th floor. As soon as a plane hit the other tower, he called his wife to say he was leaving the building. Minutes later, his wife saw the second plane hit.
His body was never recovered.
We get so caught up with numbers, hundreds, thousands, millions, we forget the people behind the numbers. The numbers are people.
