A tribute to Michael S Baksh....

Today is the anniversary of one of the worst days in the history of our country. I'd like to tell you about one of the victims of that tragic day 5 years ago. Michael S Baksh was a 36 year old man who loved music and loved to dance. His wife and I share the same first name, Christina. Fate took him from her and their 2 young children. September 11, 2001 was his first day as an insurance executive at a company located in the World Trade Center.

I learned about the 2,996 project from my friend MamaChristy, who is also participating. I wish I knew more about Michael Baksh. The little I know tells me that he was a man who loved his family and truly enjoyed life. My heart goes out to his family anf friends. Please keep the Baksh family and all others that were victims of that tragic day in your thoughts and prayers. Feel free to share your thoughts and feelings on this tragic event in the comment section. If you happened to know Michael Baksch, please share your memories of him - I, for one, would love to know more. If you didn't know him, google his name and you will find links to many tributes.

We will never forget.

It was only for a weekend in Tampa florida 1998 or so with our old broker dealer Invest financial. Its amazing that in only a weekend how somone can make such an impression and impact to my memory. Mike Baksh had such a strong and friendly smile, and his laughter, humor and personality made him shine. Not sure if my memory is accuate, but he may of just had a baby girl around this time. And as I watched the tribute today, was sad as I had missed the tribute of his name. Only seconds later I changed the channel and sure enough it was Mikes daughter telling how much he missed his father. Again only a weekend. But I will remember him forever.....god bless Mike B. and your family. Our family and this world....tears of life....Roderick Rodriguez.
