This one’s from Alexa Bucchere, daughter of my lifelong buddy, Stephen. He & I were classmates back in Regina Pacis in Brooklyn and thank God for Facebook for reuniting us.
He works for a securities industry regulatory agency & years ago, his office was located in the World Trade Center. He was heading to work that fateful Tuesday morning, September 11, 2001 from his home in Marlboro, NJ.
In Alexa’s own words…
“19 yrs. ago my dad went to get on a crowded bus to go to work at the World Trade Center & after seeing there was only 1 seat left, said to the lady near him, “I’ll wait for the next one.”
“It was as simple as that,” he has since told me & realizes that that split second, not even thinking twice decision, may not have been totally his to make.
The universe was at work & I didn’t understand it then. That little miracle like that made the difference between bringing a daughter her Dad home or not…but today i do.
Today i am acutely aware of these little miracles & know intuitively that I owe gratitude to the universe for them.
I love you Dad.”
He is such a great guy & all of us are so happy that he’s still here amongst us.
As always, thank you so much for listening!
