Well I am on the group planning my school's memorial, we are having a moment of silence at each major event of the day (6 of them), having cards signed by the student body and delivering them to the local PD and FD, then having a memorial dvd playing on school TVs, then two books on the principals office counter. We are hoping to form a committee so that these ideas can be passed on next year, and this day will not be forgotten.
I am going to fly my flag with pride. Say many prayers for those that were lost and the ones they left behind. I am also going to teach my 4 yo all about that day and snuggle with all my family and tell them how much I love them.
Our Department has started an annual parade and memorial ceremonies that go on for most of the day. First thing in the morning we attend a school special session and our Cheif is the guest speaker this year. The parade consist of all members of Emergency Services. This includes Fire, EMS, Police, Military and this year we have have our Med Evac helicopters joining in. After the parade we have guest speakers at our Optimist Club building. This has been a tradition for several years and our citizens enjoy and participate well.
We invite several acencies surrounding us to join in the parade and activites. So the parade generally lasts a while. We are a small town FD have several very active members and we are proud to remember our fallen brothers & sisters in all branches of the Emergency Services and Military.
