Cheers to Vinny

Today we reflect on the events of eleven years ago. We don’t talk about it much. Having experienced it firsthand, we wish we could ban those images and the tragedy from our memories. Our neighborhood lost countless firemen and police officers, including Captain Vinny. He also happened to be one of the best barkeeps I have ever met. So it seemed fitting to toast to his memory and his family, and to do so with the most heavenly hard cider I’ve ever had, Hallelujah Hopricot by Reverend Nat’s Hard Cider.

We remember every day, but as we reflect today, we think about all those heroes and victims as well as their families, wishing them much peace and happiness. We also find ourselves brought to our knees with gratitude for the last eleven years, most importantly being able to live and enjoy those years together and in good health.
