In 1987 my cousin Dean

In 1987 my cousin Dean Phillips was given the football helmet of his Blake School football teammate Gordy Aamoth. Gordy asked Dean to return the helmet for him to school. Gordy was killed at work in the World Trade Center (tower 2) on 9/11. Yesterday Blake School dedicated its football stadium to Gordy’s memory and named it after him. Dean not only remembered that Gordy had given him his helmet to return to the school, he dug it out of his basement and returned it just in time for the ceremony yesterday. (Those who remember Socrates’ last words may find a connection to Dean’s remembrance of his friend.) Don’t miss this story.
