Four Years Later

Brian posted this over at DEMBloggers and I asked permission to post the whole thing here rather than crosspost it.

Four years ago today events happened that changed America forever. September 11th will serve forever as a point in history when the country was united. Though that has changed since that day.

Most people will remember where they were on that day. I for one can remember sitting on my couch and watching everything happen. I can see it as clearly as if it had happened yesterday. I remember feeling grief and horror and wondering if my friends and family were ok.

Today will be used by some as a day to forward their political ambitions or firm up their base. I would rather remember those who lost their lives. This is my tribute to some of those that lost their lives.

These individuals usually don't receive all the credit they deserve. But, we will never forget them for what happened that day. Fighting fires is a job we all sometime take for granted. But it takes a special individual to run into a building while everyone else is running out.

This is my tribute to the Firefighters that lost their lives on September 11th, 2001.
