IT'S SO HARD TO BELIEVE THAT 9/11 TOOK PLACE 7 YRS AGO ALREADY. TO ME IT'S JUST LIKE IT WAS YESTERDAY BUT SADLY TO MANY OTHERS IT'S JUST ANOTHER DAY. EVEN FOR SOME IN PUBLIC SAFETY THEY HAVE FORGOTTEN OR HAVE MADE LIGHT OF IT.

LAST NIGHT AT CHURCH MY HUSBAND (WHO IS A FIREFIGHTER) MENTIONED 9/11 AND IT WAS AS IF IT MEANT NOTHING... THAT REALLY SADDENED ME. MYGOOD FRIEND SAID PERHAPS THEY WANT TO FORGET THE HORROR.... BUT WE CAN'T BECOME COMPLACENT... WE CAN'T FORGET!

SO ON THIS DAY PLEASE SAY A PRAYER FOR ALL OUR FALLEN BROTHERS, ALL THE FIRST RESPONDERS, EMT'S, PARAMEDICS, PORT AUTHORITY OFFICERS, NYPD OFFICERS, ALL THE VOLUNTEERS, THE CIVILIANS AND ANYONE ELSE THAT MAY WE NOT MENTION....

AND PLEASE ALL YOU PARENTS PLEASE DON'T LET YOUR CHILDREN FORGET... TEACH THEM ABOUT 9/11!

Shelley, Thank you for remembering, you are right, there are people out there who either has forgotten what happened or don't want to remember the horror from that day. Last night, the town I live in, had our annual remembrance of that day. Firefighters from three different stations participated and we lined the street in our gear. But there were less people there than who have attended in the past, which is a shame.

Thank you Shelley. You are so right about people forgetting...some out of indifference and some who need to forget. I can't forget. I was one who responded as part of the Arlington County Fire Department to the Pentagon on 9/11 and spent the rest of the week there. I can't forget the horror of the situation or the fear that prevailed. But I also can't forget the way people pulled together to help in whatever way they could. There were many heros that day, and many were never thanked because there were so many that pitched in it was impossible to keep track of them all.
