Where firefighters come to talk training

"One cannot look back without also looking forward. Look back at the sacrifices we have made with gratitude, remembrance and honor... Look forward with new strength, new growth and a never wavering commitment to the future."

Sometimes I wish I could recall more of the details of that fateful day 15 years ago, and the week and months that followed... other times I am glad that I cannot. But since those days, I have looked to make myself a better man.

One thing I cannot forget is the fearless actions of ALL those who gave their lives trying to save those from further harm, including the 9 brave men from my Yorkville firehouse: Engine 22 and Ladder 13. And, to all of those uniformed and civilian personnel who rushed in to support the rescue and recovery operations at the World Trade Center. 

The support I have received from family and friends has never wained over these last 15 years, and I cannot thank you enough. 

Hug those close to you extra tight today, for life is indeed fragile.

Please pass along these words of thanks and remembrance on this day. Be good to each other, it really is that simple...
