The events of September 11, 2001 were evil, cowardly, tragic and heroic. No one of us can ever fully comprehend how our lives were changed. And though we will always remember the sadness and evil of that day, the goodness and courage that we showed shines through and parts those dark clouds. Here is one blogger’s tribute to an NYFD Lt: http://raymondpronk.wordpress.com/2009/09/08/project-2996-remembering-lt-vincent-gerard-halloran/. It is very moving and it just one of the many stories of that day eight years ago. Our Governor too offered a heartfelt tribute and charge: http://www.facebook.com/notes.php?id=24718773587 She knows as only a mother can know about the dangers her son faces as he battles for America.
May we remain vigilant.
