Remembering 9-11


You say you will never forget where you were when
you heard the news On September 11, 2001.
Neither will I.

I was on the 110th floor in a smoke filled room
with a man who called his wife to say 'Good-Bye.' I
held his fingers steady as he dialed. I gave him the
peace to say, 'Honey, I am not going to make it, but it
is OK..I am ready to go.'

I was with his wife when he called as she fed
breakfast to their children. I held her up as she
tried to understand his words and as she realized
he wasn't coming home that night.

I was in the stairwell of the 23rd floor when a
woman cried out to Me for help. 'I have been
knocking on the door of your heart for 50 years!' I said.
'Of course I will show you the way home - only
believe in Me now.'

I was at the base of the building with the Priest
ministering to the injured and devastated souls.
I took him home to tend to his Flock in Heaven. He
heard my voice and answered.

I was on all four of those planes, in every seat,
with every prayer. I was with the crew as they
were overtaken. I was in the very hearts of the
believers there, comforting and assuring them that their
faith has saved them.

I was in Texas , Virginia , California , Michigan , Afghanistan .
I was standing next to you when you heard the terrible news.
Did you sense Me?

I want you to know that I saw every face. I knew
every name - though not all knew Me. Some met Me
for the first time on the 86th floor.

Some sought Me with their last breath.
Some couldn't hear Me calling to them through the
smoke and flames; 'Come to Me... this way... take
my hand.' Some chose, for the final time, to ignore Me.
But, I was there.

I did not place you in the Tower that day. You
may not know why, but I do. However, if you were
there in that explosive moment in time, would you have
reached for Me?
Sept. 11, 2001, was not the end of the journey
for you. But someday your journey will end. And I
will be there for you as well. Seek Me now while I may
be found. Then, at any moment, you know you are
'ready to go.'

I will be in the stairwell of your final moments.


About Me

Yes, I am The Photographer, Billy "The Kid"..... I am creating this blog to let you know what is happening with me and Billy "The Kid" Photography. But, in my blog, I will not just talk about Photography. I also love to write, so do not be surprised, if I discuss things that have nothing to do with photography.
I love to talk about Philosophy, Religion, Politics, Music and ofcourse Sports. I also love to cook and there may even be an occasional recipe that I may share on here :-)
I was born and raised in New York. In 1991, I moved to Tampa, FL where I still maintain a part time residence. I am currently in the Los Angeles area in California. I do travel with my photography and some of the places, I love to visit the most is Dallas, TX and Las Vegas, NV.
I started my photography career in The Music Industry in NYC. I worked for Famed Rock & Roll Photographer, Mark Weiss. Upon Moving to Florida in 1991, I worked for Famed Michael Jackson "Thriller" Photographer Dick Zimmerman. I ran Dick Zimmerman's Tampa Fashion Studio Called "Studio Z". In 1995, I started Billy "The Kid" Photography and I was the Official Photographer of The Tampa Bay Buccaneer Cheerleaders and The Tampa Bay Storm Arena Football Team. I also photographed for Clear Channel Radio in Tampa, FL.
I have worked many years creating images. Being Creative was always one of my strong points. I decided to be a photographer back in High School, when I wanted to work in a field that I had a passion for. I did not want a desk job, I wanted to do something that was an extension of who I am. And Photography was the answer.
I have a Bachelors of Fine Arts Degree From Long Island University. So, I have quite a bit of education behind my work. I am also a born again Christian and there will be another blog about that for it deserves it's own Blog!
