Michelle Malkin has an excellent post today entitled:
Seven years later: Remembrance and resolve
One of the links in that post is:
Remember: The 9/11 babies.
That made me think about the unseen victims of 9/11/2001…
Who are the children that would have been born over the last seven years if one or both of their parents had not been killed by terrorists on 9/11/2001?
We will never know them, because their conception was prevented by the murder of one or both of their parents.
Many of the known victims from 9/11/2001 were of childbearing age or younger. People like Jennifer Mazzotta who was 23 years old and engaged. People like Sara Elizabeth Manley Harvey who was 31 when she was married on 8/11/2001, and murdered exactly one month later on 9/11/2001. With their deaths died any hope of their being a mother now, seven years later.
There were 2,996 known victims on 9/11/2001, and there are countless unseen victims… children (and future grandchildren, etc.) who never got the chance to live.
