    • Remember the Fallen
      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.

        • Remember the Fallen and those still paying the price everyday.
          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

            • It pains me to think that this September we will begin to see 17 year old volunteer FF's who weren't even alive on the day that most of us remember so vividly.

                Why does that pain you? It was a horrible day in the history of the fire service but without those 17, 18, 19 year old kids coming up who will take the place of those retiring?

                It is up to us to pass the memory of those that died that day along to this next generation so that they never forget.

                  All of our current apparatus was acquired after 2001. Every piece has a 9/11 decal on it. As long as I'm able, I'll make sure that remains the case.

                  Opinions my own. Standard disclaimers apply.

                  Everyone goes home. Safety begins with you.

                  • Maybe the "pains me" was an inaccurate choice of words. It's just that they will go into this without really knowing what it felt like on that day, regardless of where you were. We were so fortunate that day because for a time, all of us actually felt what it was like to be brought together as a country. Unfortunately, it seems as though that has been just the opposite for the last decade or so. Maybe that is what really "pains me."

                    • Kind of a weird post from my point of view. No disrespect intended.

                      In many ways that day has never ended. The world changed along with America's involvement in it. Look at what has happened with our military since then. The current soldiers were babies at the time.

                      So many are still sick and dying from the effects of that day. Just this morning a notification came down that an EMS Division Chief passed away from 9/11 related illness. It seems likely that within a couple of years the number of FDNY deaths will be double the 343 lost that day.

                        That is the sad truth that so many in the general public simply don't know about. The deaths from 9/11 haven't come close to stopping.

                        I wonder how many construction workers working the pile have come down with similar diseases or in fact died. They get even less press than the Fire, EMS and Cops.

                          You are correct and I should have mentioned them. There are thousands of people who had long term exposure to toxins as a result of the attack. And many of them have gotten sick or died.
