    I'm Free

    Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free
    I'm following the path God laid for me.
    I took his hand when I heard him call
    I turned my back and left it all.
    I could not stay another day.
    To laugh, to love, to work or play.

    Tasks left undone must stay that way,
    I found that peace at close of day.
    If my parting has left a void,
    Then fill it with remembered joy.

    A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss,
    Ah yes, these things I too will miss.
    Be not burdened with times of sorrow,
    I wish you sunshine of tomorrow.

    My life's been full, I've savored much,
    Good friends, good times, a loved one's touch.

    Perhaps my time seemed all too brief;
    Don't lengthen it now with undue grief.
    Lift up your hearts and share with me,
    God wanted me now;

    He set me free.

    In the midst of this sorrow we all stand together. May the fallen heroes of NYC inspire us in our work and never be forgotten.

    To the families of those who gave the ultimate sacrifice and to those who are still working hard in the rescue and recovery effort, we on the Uinta National Forest fire crews extend our sympathy and support. God bless you all.

    We remember our American comrades, who have lost their life in exercise of their service after the terror-attack in New York. However, we also mourn with the members in these difficult hours.

    Today is the first day I have been able to sit down and post my thoughts and feelings about this tragedy.

    My crew and I were on duty when this happened. We were sitting around the table, drinking coffee and watching the news as usual, when they showed breaking news about the first plane crash and resulting fire in the first tower. We were under the impression it was a small plane and were talking about how big of a job that high rise fire was going to be. We also commented that FDNY would handle it because they are one of the best at high rise jobs. As we were talking and joking about how we don't even know what a real high rise is, (our highest building is 7 stories), we saw the second plane hit the other tower "LIVE". The mood around the station totally changed from joking and wishing we had a fire to horror, shock and disbelief. It only got worse as the day went on.

    I have had people ask why the firefighters stayed in the building even after the second plane hit. We tried to explain it to them, but I think a quote from Edward Crocker - Chief of Department FDNY 1899-1911 explains it best.

    "I have no ambition in this world but one, and that is to be a fireman. The position may, in the eyes of some, appear to be a lowly one; but we who know the work which a fireman has to do, believe his is a nobile calling. Our proudest moment is to save ... Lives. Under the impulse of such thoughts the nobility of the occupation thrills us and stimulates us to Deeds of Daring, even of Supreme Sacrifice."

    Remember who we are and what we stand for. God bless each of us to remember the sacrifices made and the honor and duty of our profession.

    God bless all those firefighters who risked and still are risking their lives to save others'. I pray that God will continually give you courage and strength. Although I am not American and am not from the USA, I thank you for your tireless efforts and your selfless acts. You really are heroes and you inspire everyone everywhere.

    When you are sad...I will dry your tears.
    When you are scared...I will comfort your fears.
    When you are worried...I will give you hope.
    When you are confused...I will help you cope.
    And when you are lost...And you can't see the light.
    I shall be your beacon...Shining ever so bright.
    This is my oath...I pledge till the end.
    Why, you may ask?...Because I am a firefighter

    To ALL the FDNY,you truly are HEROES. To have witnessed this horror first hand then to go back in time and time again to search for lost colleagues. I've never been more PROUD to be a tiny part of the worldwide family of firefighters.

    Our Hearts and Thoughts are with all those who have been killed, Injured, or still missing in both Terrorist attacks on the United States.

    On a September day,
    A group of Terrorist took our friends away.

    They dove from out of the sky,
    Causing our heroic friends to die.

    When the twin buildings came crushing down,
    Our Hearts and Spirits could only frown.

    With resilience we shall survive,
    To keep the memories of those men and women alive.

    They were there to help their fellow man,
    Now our friends are in God's loving hands.

    For the Spirit of a nation shall grow even stronger,
    We shall not take our lives for granted any longer.

    For the Red, White, and Blue,
    Shall see this nation Through!

    GOD BLESS AMERICIA!!

    I am totally without words. This horrific event has touched everyone very deeply. I cannot imagine what firefighter wives/husbands, children, family members are going through. As a firefighter's wife, I understand the risks involved, but my word, who would have EVER imagined something like this happening. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. God bless you for giving it your all and not giving up and for putting your lives on the line!!!

    Im a single Mom of two boys and becoming a buffalo fire fighter is something that is a desire of mine, I've passed all there needs to be passed and now seeing all this horror and the cries for all those fire fighters who died makes me want to be nothing more in life then a firefighter. I look at my children and while I can see the fear in there eyes of my desires I know that this is something in me. I can say that as I stand here today a firefighter is a hero and knowing that men and woman alike stand out there willing to put aside there loved ones fears for those who are in need. I cant think of anything more with such an honor that I would rather be. My prayers to all those firefighters and police officer and there loved ones.
    May God Bless Us All!null
