Photo of the Day


I was watching Fox News today at lunch time today. Most of the coverage was dedicated to the anniversary of the September 11th terrorist attacks. During an interview with former White House Chief of Staff Andy Card who was describing the moment he informed President Bush that a second plane had it the second tower I noticed the names of the dead (all 2977 of them) were being displayed in alphabetical order across the bottom of the screen. I took the above picture when the name of Sean Thomas Canavan was passing. Sean Canavan was an Irishman from Co Tyrone. Sean was a carpenter working on the 98th floor of the south tower when it was hit. When the north tower was hit everybody on the 98th floor of the south tower was evacuated but for some reason Sean was not. Sean Canavan was a first cousin of Peter Canavan, the greatest Gaelic Footballer of the last twenty years. On September 11th 2001 Sean Canavan was murdered by Islamic extremists who hate western civilisation.

They are purists not extremists Ted.

As a close relative of Sean Canavan, I was surprised to find your post with the quote, "When the north tower was hit everybody on the 98th floor of the south tower was evacuated but for some reason Sean was not." I would like to know where you got information like this. This is the first and only time we have ever heard this.
