Bob,
I think about 9/11 all year round. As a retired firefighter, I couldn't forget if I wanted to. I feel bad for all those people that died there, and even worse the way things have been handled there since. NFW it should have taken this long to build a memorial. They should have built the twin towers back again, bigger and better with a huge hand on top of each with the middle finger pointing towards the middle east. Too many liberals thinking politically correct is the way to go. Just turning our country into a bunch of candy asses.

Speaking as a former NYC resident and volly fireman i couldn't agree with you more, sir, but one thing i would like to add is that i think the PC libs are the reason the memorial and towers have been so long in the remaking. Also i think that giving them, the PC libs, the victory in "turning our country into a bunch of candy asses" is not a fact but instead a viewpoint. It is both my belief and hope that the REAL Americans will wake up soon and preserve and protect the freedoms that so many of us take for granted.

I agree with Bob, it's a shame people only remember on the anniversary...

We have a special relationship with FDNY and 911. We sent them FF's and a new truck... They did the same for us after Katrina.

We proudly have a chunk of steel beam from one of the towers and an axe from one of the ladder Co's buried under the rubble and a memorial of the FF's who stationed to that ladder.

The picture is the lawn in front of our station this morn, 343 flags...

Educate your children on what happened today, ten yrs ago. More kids should learn history from thier elders rather than from PC mass media and public schools.

I agree with you guys, I would have loved to see the towers rebuilt bigger and better.

Tom, I'm going to have to come visit your station one day. I know allot of the departments in the area and I thought Ferrera Fire Apparatus them selves gave Trucks and Equipment but I didn't realize you guys had that stuff.

It seems that this anniversary is
mostly for the "main-stream" media...

I remember EVERY day, and think footage of the actual event should be required viewing in every highschool, annually.

...along with a question-and-answer period to follow, and NOT moderated by the PC crowd.

Just my opinion.

Now, I think I'll go outside and work on my marksmanship.

...ever notice how "I'm sorry" and "I apologize" mean the same thing, unless you are at a funeral..?

Rich, I should clarify. The State of Louisiana sent the Spirit Of Louisiana Fire Engine to FDNY and several Depts and Ferrera spear headed it. We ended up in the middle of it all and some of our guys drove the Engine up and others flew/drove up to help staff the empty fire houses and apparatus.

FDNY returned the favor after Katrina, sending the same Engine as well as man power down to us. Our newest station, St 10 was built after 9.11 and before Katrina. It was dedicated to the 343.

I don't know about the rest of you who I consider my freinds, but I find it very hard to watch anything pertaining to 9/11. I have seen the movie "Reigning over me" totally by accident because I didn't know it was a 9/11 movie and it ripped my heart out. Every time I hear Alan Jackson sing his song "Where were you when the world stopped turning" sometimes I have to just stop what I'm doing. When I heard what was happening that day I had to shut my job down and go be with my kids. It seemed like the longest 30 miles I have ever driven. Today I tried to sit and watch TV thinking I can face this, guess what the first thing I turned on was "Reigning over me", I couldn't continue. Am I crazy or what????

As do I...

I remember all the American flags on the "soccer-mom" cars, following that day...

Didn't last long.

Maybe we should see things we don't want to see.

Some pictures from Art Hill in St Louis sent from my in-laws... Quite impressive! A flag for each victim each with a name on it...

September 11th 2001 is a day that changed my life for ever. I was in the Army then. Three deployments and a lot of blood sweat and tears will change a guy good or bad. I agree with the above posts. Seems like every one wants to forget what happened. All the Brave men and women who willing gave there lives to help save lives. Just cant ever let that be forgotten. Cant let it be PC'ed to death like Pearl Harbor was.
Tom thank you and your fellow fire fighters for keeping the memory alive. your pics brought tears to my eyes. It seems like no one out side the military and fire fighters ( know that's not the case) has such a connection to what happened and the lives that were lost. I truly think you guys are one of a kind. Thank you guys for what you do.
