Peter C. Alderman
PETER ALDERMAN died at 25, yet his was a life well-lived, for he truly understood the meaning of love and friendship. Peter grew up in Scarsdale, NY, and graduated from Scarsdale High School in 1994 and from American University in 1999. He was working for Bloomberg LP when he was murdered by terrorists on September 11, 2001. Peter literally had hundreds of friends. Although he was bright and funny and knew how to have a good time, most importantly, Peter was caring and compassionate. To quote a friend, “If life is measured in love, then Peter’s was an exemplary one. Peter was loved by so many because he himself loved. His loving way was radiated through his smile; from the first moment you saw his smile you knew in your heart that he was a friend. When you were around Peter, it made you a better person, not because of anything he said or did, but simply because his mere presence brought you joy.”
"While the death of most people is the end, Peter’s death was the beginning of life for so many people all over the world."
