Sean Rooney was killed in the attacks on the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. When the building was first hit with the planes, Sean’s instinct was to call his wife.
Their conversation became a testament to true love and a reminder of what really matters at the end of our days and the impact of our loved ones on our lives while they’re here and even after they’re gone.
Calm In The Chaos
Sean Rooney was working in the south tower of the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001, a day that not only marked all of humanity but touched individual lives on a deep, tragic personal level.
Sean was working on the 105th floor, meaning the way down would be long and almost impossible. When the planes hit, a million things could have been going through Sean’s mind as his body was feeling threatened and the entirety of his being was entering survival mode. Yet, only one thing seemed clear to Sean at that moment….it was his wife’s soothing, loving voice. He knew that no matter what was happening around him, he needed to call Beverly. He knew that somehow the love of his life would get him through the chaos, no matter the outcome.
