I did not know who Sushil Solanki was until I volunteered for Project 2996. Sushil Solanki had just gone to work, like any other work day. Sushil was from India. He had been employed by Cantor Fitzgerald for 12 years as a computer operator. He was on the 103rd floor of Tower One when this tragic terrorist attack took place. Mr. Solanki was a devoted family man.He is survived by his wife Lynette and their son, Brendon. Sushil was known to love a good game of cricket, movies, doing anything that involved his family and friends. He was known for his kindness, thoughtfulness and caring nature. I cannot imagine what
may have been going through mind when all this came down on him and 2,995 others.
As I did my research it quickly become clear that there was not
much information available about Mr. Solanki. I can only add my
memories about that most horrible day when this country was
attacked by Islamofacist terrorists. My words that follow are
for Sushil Solanki, his family, friends and all who will never forget
September 11, 2001. Shame on us if we ever forget for even one
day the loss that so many people and this country suffered on that day.
I was recovering from spinal fusion surgery when a very good friend called me at 7:15 AM Pacific time to turn on the television, sit down and prepare myself to be stunned. I did and I was. My friend, Michael Almond came over and for three days we did not move far from the television. As we watched, over and over the film, commnetary and reports, my mind was filled with pain for those who had lost loved ones. The images are seared into my mind and soul forever. I will carry them with me to my final resting place. Some of the images that are so vivid and horrifying are those of the people trapped in the twin towers, jumping from windows and falling to their deaths. The feeling of being completely and totally helpless, overwhelmed me and my friend. I recall many hours of prayer and callling out to the Lord for those who were lost, and for those on flight 93 who so willingly gave their lives so that one less plane was able to complete it mission of terrorism and death. God showed me a picture that day that was
so clear and sharp; a picture of two hands reaching
down from the heavens, so that every one of 2,996 souls
were safely caught in God's loving hands.
How can I ever feel what all those families have felt every day since 9/11/2001. I have lost family and friends before but all to the usual circumstances we experience in our lifetimes. I just do not believe I or anyone else can. What we can do is be sure that we never forget those who were taken away from their loved ones on a day when these 2,996 victims had just gone to work, to patrol, to answer rescue calls and respond in a way that we never thought we would see on American soil. The Jewish people have a saying that came out of the holocaust of world war two: NEVER AGAIN. Let this be true for this nation and its people.
I can envision Sushil Solanki and perhaps his last thoughts; for his wife and family, a life of dedication to being the best man he could be, of being with his family to whom he was so deeply devoted to, and loved more than anything else. A person who came here from India. He built a good life and a great family. He was an example of why people from all over the world, come to the Untited States. Those same reasons are still alive today.
Revelations 21:4-5 And God will wipe away every tear from thier eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.
5 Then He who sat on the throne said, "behold, I make all things new." And he said to me, "Write, for these words are true and faithful."
