Celebrating the Life of Joseph E Maloney

n this 5th anniversary of the day no one will ever forget, I am honored to be participating in 2996 Project memorializing the victims of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.

I honor the memory of Joseph E Maloney. I did not know Joseph, and from the very little information i have been able to find i can assume he was a very private person who was dedicated to his job; my heart goes out to his family and friends who miss him terribly. There are no words that can convey the depth of sorrow that was felt. Felt by everyone who lost a loved one that fateful day. There are no words I can find to bring the comfort that is so desperately needed. So I offer this tribute to Joseph. I believe in God and a power greater than us all who surely is taking good care of your Joseph and all those who have gone on.

Joseph was a Fire Fighter with the New York fire dept in Manhattan, Dvision 1 Battalion 6. He died trying to save others in The World Trade Centre. Joseph was only 46 and lived in Farmingville NY.

The ninth month brought the end to many,

The eleventh was a day of testing

Nine one one a call for help from any

It left no time of resting.

True warriors dressed in red suitsNavy blue or yellow

They called in all the recruitsto rescue ailing fellow.

What senselss acts of violenceRain down on us today

what path will cross with terrorand cause us great dismay?

This is the world our children face.

Their lives are being molded.

The acts of hate, time won't erase,

Like a shroud it has enfolded.

What can we say?

What can we do?

As time whirls swiftly byLet love be instilled with a family view So our values never die.

To the families of the 10 Australians that died that awful day, i wish you peace abd solitude.
