I often blog about the family and friends of the mob wives and mistresses that we watch each week. It’s not only interesting reading, but it gives us a fuller and deeper understanding of the women and their lives. Instead of the one dimensional picture we are given about their life in the mob, it’s insightful to have some additional information into who they are and where they came from. And, although we haven’t seen Love Majewski’s episode of I Married A Mobster yet, I came across a very interesting article in the Daily News, written by her mother, Lorraine Arias-Beliveau, that tells one amazing story. It's the story of the love of a sister for her brother, who was a hero.
Lorraine describes how her youngest brother, Adam Arias, was a hero who saved lives the day the second World Trade Center building was struck in the 9/11 attack. His office was on the 84th floor. Lorraine says that another of their brothers, Major Donald Arias, in the US Air Force, had called to warn him about the attack and told him to get out of the building immediately. Adam was concerned for the safety of others and gave no thought to hmself. He raced through the office making sure all employees left the building. Many have said that he saved their lives that day. Adam was last seen outside the towers helping firefighters get people to safety. In his valiant efforts to save others, he stayed moments too long at the site. The towers collapsed, he was killed and his remains were discovered 8 days later.
