  • Remember

    It's been 14 years.

    Rest easy brothers. We'll take it from here.

    Please keep those in mind who have died since that day with post-9/11 illnesses, and those who continue to struggle with them as we speak.
    Train to fight the fires you fight.

    We are up to 110 deaths due to illnesses related to the rescue and recovery efforts after 9/11. And counting. Probably some more than haven't been officially recognized yet.

    Never forgive.

    Never forget.

      For those who are wondering why I'd post today, I'm on duty. Went to two memorial services this morning at local firehouses. Now kicking back in office for a couple of minutes.

        Rest In Peace Brothers, we will never forget you.

        Remember too the NYPD, PAPD, EMS personnel both FDNY and privates, and the Fire Patrol member, that lost their lives that day. Remember too those that just started their work day and perished. The thing that people seem to forget is there were men and women from many countries in those buildings working, Not just Americans.

        Remember too those that bravely fought the terrorists and died on Flight 93. There is no doubt that they stopped another horrific use of that plane as a missile into yet another unknown target.
        Crazy, but that's how it goes
        Millions of people living as foes
        Maybe it's not too late
        To learn how to love, and forget how to hate

          Still one of the best political cartoons about 9/11.
          They told me if I voted for Hillary Clinton the president would be emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable. They were right. I voted for Hillary Clinton and got a president that is emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable.

          I'm not saying you're stupid. I'm saying you have bad luck when it comes to thinking.

            Spent 9/11 flying from Shreveport to Denver and then driving to a funky little town in the mountains to teach for the National Fire Academy this weekend.

            Found a nice little 9/11 ceremony this evening in Idaho Springs, Co, quite by chance. A very nice end to the day.

              Can't be the best day to be on a plane.
