My Life: 9/11/01 In Memory of...

I remember where I was and know that you remember where you were when the the September 11, 2001 tragedy occurred.

I was at work, my Woodbridge Branch, and Joe was getting off duty that day...off duty from doing a day, night, day.  Joe was a fire fighter.  Actually, he was a Lieutenant at that time.

When we got home, he told me that we needed to take a ride to the Chief's Office.  He wanted to sign up to volunteer to search and help find his brothers.  

As you know, there were thousands of volunteers that helped search through the rubble.  And although Joe was never selected to help, you know that brothers band together.  They always did and always will 
whether one is in need
or facing their enemy...death.

firefighters are the brave ones! the ones that rescue anyone...anything...in need.
and that day...that fateful day which is etched in our minds forever...the firefighters were the real heroes. rescuing their lives to save as many as they could. and so many lost their own lives.

it's a shame that we all can remember so clearly...where we were...what we were doing...how we felt...BUT sometimes forget the happy times in our lives.

what a tragedy...9/11.
hopefully someday...this memory will be replaced by those of a peaceful existence.

love & peace....
