      I can't thank you enough for the excellent slide show of photos that you've been maintaining. I live outside the Wash, DC area and first-hand saw the billowing black smoke from the Pentagon - a sight I'll never forget. Your capturing of the people, FFs, EMS personnel and scenes remind us how precious life is and how it will forever be changed.

      As a member of a firefighting family, we are with you in this search mission, if not onsight, in our thoughts and prayers. We pray you'll be able to move forward once this disaster is behind us, if that will ever be.

      We love you, God loves you. Be careful, stay safe, get rest, hug your spouse and kids, stay focused on the task at hand.

          Dear Firefighters,

          I have two sons. One is a police officer and the other a
          paramedic/firefighter. Both (especially the firefighter) would have been
          one of the first in the buildings had they lived in the area. My
          firefighter son (Brian) was ready to come to NY as quickly as possible but
          is needed at this time at his own "house" in Cocoa Beach, Florida. He was
          in tears at the loss of "brothers" he never knew. We all feel that way....
          May God bless you.

              Dear gentlemen,

              I just wanted to say Thank you. The fearlessness in which you do you job,
              allows the the rest of our country to feel safe. You gentlemen are a rare and
              seperate breed and our nation, as a whole, grieves with you.

              I live in South Florida and feel empty that I, as a citizen of this great
              country, cannot help in some way.

              Again, I really just wanted to say thank you for being the men/women you are.

              Love, Support and Saddness,
              Mark A. Belcastro

                Please pass on my heart felt condolences to my fellow firefighters in New York. It has been said that when you become a firefighter you don't just join a fire service you become part of a very large "family". We have lost family.

                  fighting, God bless you! You are in my heart and in my prayers. I
                  admire you for your courage and bravery!

                  Keep faith in God - "Stop telling your God how big your mountains are, start
                  telling your mountains how BIG your God is!"

                      Everyone I know is stunned and profoundly moved at the horror, yet heartened

                      Best wishes to everyone involved in the operation.

                            I'd like to pass this on to everyone around the world.....

                            THE VALUE OF A SMILE. (Author Unknown)
                            A smile is nature's best anti-dote for discouragement.

                            It brings rest to the weary, sunshine to those who are sad, and hope to those who are hopeless and defeated.

                            A smile is so valuable that it can't be bought, begged, borrowed, or taken away against your will. You have to be willing to give a smile away before it can do anyone else any good.

                            So if someone is too tired or grumpy to flash you a smile, let him have one of yours anyway.

                            Nobody needs a smile as much as the person who has none to give....

                            As I sit here and write this with a tear in my eye, I'm forcing a smile onto my face for all the fallen "heroes", the friends, families of lost ones, and those who still don't know where they may be- here catch mine.....

                            Together, we will overcome this tragedy.
