Raise awareness. Call to action.

Remembering Abul K. Chowdhury

In order to do justice to the life and memory of Abul K. Chowdhury (age 30) and to Project 2996, I set out to discover as much information as I could about this man. Sadly, I was able to find very little. Fortunately, however, I believe what I found is enough.

There seem to be certain moments, memories, or words spoken by an individual that reveal just who they really are.

Abul was a family man, married to Young Kim just months prior to 9/11. He also had four sisters and a brother with whom he shared the responsibility of caring for their parents. His brother, Qaisar, said of he and Abul’s relationship, “We two brothers, we help the whole family. We two brothers are like two arms.”

This simple analogy reveals just who Abul was: an upright and generous man, willing to give of himself for the benefit of another.

Rest in peace, Abul.
