- Remembering 9-11-01
- September 10th, 2011
Ten years ago tomorrow, I was making a delivery in downtown Chicago. I had no clue of the events transpiring in Manhattan, Washington,DC and in Pennsylvania. But soon it became apparent something was up when downtown Chicago was being shut down and evacuated, I have never seen so many police officers. Only after I left the city, did I hear what had happened. I remember being angry, hurt, sad. Ten years later I find myself in downtown Chicago again. The anger, hurt and sadness surfaced once again.
In reverent remembrance I think of all the innocent victims, the firefighters, EMTs, first responders and the port authority officers who unselfish dedication to the lives of total strangers, risk their own lives to save others. To the families who lost fathers, husbands, wives, sons and daughters.
I am so proud to have been associated with the firefighters and EMTs of America.
