    The heroes who lost their lives on that tragic day will always be celebrated and held high as symbols of freedom for which this great country called the United States of America stands for.
    “It is impossible to fully comprehend the evil that would have conjured up such a cowardly and depraved assault upon thousands of innocent people.” — Canadian Prime Minister Jean Chretien, Sept. 11.
    God bless the families and loves ones of all the victims.
    God bless America.

  • Rosaliene Bacchus  On 09/12/2012 at 12:01 am

    May those they have left behind be comforted.

  • Cyril Balkaran  On 09/12/2012 at 3:26 am

    They all met with an untimely death in the pursuit of their daily duties. Remember work is worship and true work is true worship. May their souls rest in peace and may their surviving loved ones find the solace to accept what the devil had decreed on that fateful morning of September 11th 2001. God Bless the victims. their families and GOD BLESS AMERICA!

      Cyril Balkaran,
      Why your GOD, did not prevent their DEATH? Also, why should GOD BLESS AMERICA, when they are directly responsible for more human deaths and horrendous suffering than all of the other countries combine.

  • canjeboy  On 09/11/2013 at 8:18 pm

    Cyril Balkaran,
    Why your GOD, did not prevent their DEATH on 11th. Sept. 2011? If your GOD had stopped those people dying, there would be no need to bless them or their families. Also, why should GOD BLESS AMERICA !, when they are directly responsible for more human deaths and horrendous suffering than the sum all of the other countries on this planet.

    Sad day in history.

  • Ishwar Prashad  On 09/12/2013 at 3:02 pm

    Thanks for sharing the names of those who perished on that day of infamy. Hope their loved ones are well I have often wondered who they were and now I know and do offer my condolences to their families.

  • V Ramcharran  On 09/16/2013 at 11:25 pm

    This is the first time I am reading the description of Guyanese who died on 9/11 and it saddens me greatly that these innocent people had to give up their lives for such an insane cause.
    I can relate to some of the places in Guyana they once lived, because I have relatives there and our paths must have crossed on the same dirt road.
    Where there is violence, more will be generated to get even. Its a lose lose situation that is proven true, as we look at the big picture of the world today.


  • Winston Overton  On 03/03/2014 at 9:42 pm

    I am so grateful that Rudy Bacchus has not been forgotten. May God bless his soul and truly comfort all his Loved Ones. He was a charismatic gentle giant among Floor Brokers of the American Stock Exchange. He had hoped to one day visit Guyana with me and his family. He will never be forgotten by all those, whose lives he touched; as is evidenced by the mention of him in my book – “Wall Street Scandals” by Winston Overton. (Page 7)
    May God also bless the other souls that departed this life on 9/11 and bring peace and comfort to their Loved Ones.

  • Meena  On 09/11/2019 at 9:54 am

    My heart is just sad today, they have just passed on in such an innocent way, (Heroes) that is still unbelievable today! There are a few from my hometown, and my heart goes out to their families ❤🙏 God bless!

  • Deodat Guman  On 09/11/2019 at 3:51 pm

  • Francis Quamina Farrier  On 09/11/2021 at 1:43 pm

    Although 20 years have passed, condolences are still in order to all Family members and Friends of those Guyanese who lost their lives on 9/11. May their souls Rest in Peace.

    • Chris  On 09/11/2021 at 11:00 pm

      The pain of losing a loved one never goes away.
