The 9/11 terrors attacks were no doubt among the most evil crimes perpetrated on innocent victims ever. More than 3000 people lost their life in the attacks. Most of these victims were snatched away from their life and deprived of their existence forcibly and cruelly. Their families had to bear this unimaginable loss.
Did some of these victims return to visit or comfort their loved ones?
Here is an article from the New York post which seems to answer in the affirmative.
This week, seven relatives of people who died on 9/11 were given unprecedented access to the hallowed space at Ground Zero -- for a special on A&E.
With thousands of relatives and every network scrambling for a way inside the memorial a month before the official opening, why were these select few given this unprecedented access?
Believe it or not, it was because of their previous unprecedented access. No, not to living politicians -- but to their dead relatives.The Port Authority, apparently, isn't all steel and steely reserve.
Yes, all of these people have been visited or had signs from loved ones who died on that tragic day 10 years ago.
Jacie (with mom Lisa) sees visions of her dad.
"Beyond: Messages from 9/11," which will air on Sept. 10, grew out of 9/11 widow Bonnie McEneaney's book, "Messages: Signs, Visits and Premonitions From Loved Ones Lost on 9/11" (Harper Collins).
McEneaney based the book on her experiences with her husband, Eamon -- before and after he died -- as well as other 9/11 relatives who, like her, had signs and visitations from beyond the grave when they most needed comfort.
Bonnie's first experience was a "bright wind" that came from a tree and encircled her like a tiny, gentle tornado.
I was invited to join the group as we walked to the site with tears flowing freely as we stood at the "9/11 National Memorial Waterfalls."
Jacie O'Brien was just 4 when her dad, a broker at Cantor Fitzgerald, died on 9/11.
Jacie told me she had seen her dad many times on the swings in the playground in the years after 9/11.
"He liked to tell me knock-knock jokes," she said. She told her mom, Lisa, that he was with "the boys" from work. When Lisa showed her a photo of the other dead men, little Jacie named each one -- by first and last name.
Mark Reo, who lost both his brother John and his brother-in-law John Swaine on 9/11, came to meet firefighter John Morabito, who has spoken out about his experiences that day.
Morabito has revealed his experiences -- including how, at the end of that first horrific day, he crossed the Brooklyn Bridge accompanied by an African American construction worker who told him to keep telling the world the story of that day. Turns out, his companion was not alive and was only seen by him.
Reo, through tears, told me that after 9/11 he went to the train station where his brother and brother-in-law used to commute together and yelled into the wind, "John, you've got to give me a sign!"
When he turned the corner, a large cardboard box was in his path and, as he stood there, a shaft of sunlight fell directly on the letters imprinted on the box. "Brother" was spelled out in bright blue letters.
Life is very strange indeed. Let us pray that these folks find peace and comfort and also that the world does not get to suffer such horror ever again!
