      After I'm dead I'd rather have people ask why I have no monument than why I have one

          For those who don't know, the link Ray posted are the words of William Feehan, First Dep Commissioner of the FDNY before he gave his life on 9-11-01. The words are eerie when you consider his final end.

            William Feehan is right when he says "you can't pay someone to do this job " ..... It's in our blood and in our hearts, and I don't think there's one of us who could just pack it in tomorrow and walk away a happy person. I know that I couldn't.
            To the world you might be one person, but to one person you just might be the world.

                Some interesting history behind the clip posted by E40FDNYL35:

                Bill Feehan's son (Billy Jr.) was the one who proposed the idea to his father. "The Chief" reluctantly agreed and his family is thankful he did, and to have this memory of Bill Sr.

                The music in the background ("Ashokan Farewell") has ties to the Ken
                Burns' "Civil War" series, as well as an Irish/Scottish/Hibernian
                heritage. Bill Sr was an avid Civil War buff, and was as "Irish as Paddy's Pig". Click Here for the history behind the music.

                Billy Jr. received permission from the Catholic church to have the melody played at Bill's Sr.'s Funeral Mass on Saturday September 15th, 2001 in New York (Unless there are extraordinary circumstances, the Church will only allow approved liturgical music at all Masses). Needless to say, this qualified.
