Visibility 9-11 welcomes special guest, Ellen Mariani, wife of Neil Mariani who was aboard United Flight 175 which was flown into the South Tower of the World Trade Center on September 11th, 2001. Click here for a special tribute web page I built for Ellen on our old Colorado 9-11 Visibility website. Click here to read the poem Ellen wrote to Neil, Three Kisses, mentioned in the interview.

Dear Ellen, Many thanks for your courage and integrity. Your story should make every American\\\'s blood boil--especially those who gave to the Red Cross fund. Good god, there was over ten billion dollars donated to you and the other families. I can\\\'t imagine a law that allows them to withhold public donations for refusing to sign away your constitutional rights. That is just absurd. It\\\'s tyrannical. That fund had more than enough to keep every family secure and comfortable for the rest of your lives. Listen, if the donors were not notified that the families would be forced to sign away their legal, constitutional rights to get a share, the Red Cross committed a crime. It\\\'s that simple. I hope you continue to speak out. Americans need to understand what is happening to our government.
