Dear friends in the USA.

I am Graham from Merseyside Fire Service . United kingdom.

I visited the United States in 2000, Washington DC and New York.

My family and I were made so welcome by our friends in the USA, Herndon VA, Ladder Company 36 and in Washington DC, I have decided to contact this forum.

Our visit to New York was fantastic and in particular the WTC, we will never forget it and we will, be back.

I would like to say to all my friends at FCFD and at the FDNY how outraged I am for the terrible events which have occured in the USA, over the past few day.

No words can describe the horror that has occured, it has been so sad to see the events unfold on CNN TV.

Our thoughts are with all the rescue workers,etc in the FDNY and in particular, I would like to send a message to Fire Capt Ferguson. FDNY.

I am so sorry for your loss during this horrific event, my thoughts are with you all.

It has been so tragic for all of you in the USA, we are all thinking of you.

God Bless.
