As for many of us this time of year always makes us stop and say a prayer for the Firefighters, Police Officers, Port Authority Officers and Public Safety Officials who perished on 9-11-01. Today, I was going through my computer looking at all of the images from that day of darkness and I stopped again to say another prayer. For me, I did not know any of the Firefighters personally, but for those that did, I pray for you and the families that have no more. We will not forget! Most importantly, we as brothers and sisters of the Fire Service will move on and be stronger than ever. Since that day back in September I have changed my life, my family and the respect I give the Fire Service. Lastly this time of year makes us remember 9-11, but don’t forget about all those who have given their lives in the past year that may be just one of the names in the news, they shall not be forgotten either!
