"Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it"
Lest We Forget!
I was eight years old when the Boston Bruins won the Stanley Cup in the 1969-70 season. I had many favorite players from the "Big Bad Bruins", such as Bobby Orr, Phil Esposito, Gerry Cheevers and "Ace" Bailey. I collected their hockey cards, pretended I was them while playing street hockey and watched every game.
Fast forward to 9:03 a.m. Tuesday September 11, 2001, when pilot hijacker Marwan al-Shehhi flew United Airlines Flight 175 into the World Trade Tower killing 65 people including Garnet "Ace" Bailey. I am still angry that a piece of my childhood was taken away for nothing more than sheer hatred. I will not forget and unfortunately, at this time I can not forgive. Ace Bailey was a hell of a hockey player and an even greater man. Please go here to read a short biography of him, http://acebailey.org/aboutace.htm
You can even tell by Ace's autograph what a fun guy he was.
