My daughter works in a school, and this afternoon, she posted a story that was very touching. She said that one of the students in her school, told her that the man in the middle of this picture was her uncle, that he was a fire fighter. Her grandfather, who was in the Pentagon at this same time, was also a fire fighter. The student, told her of the reaction of her aunt and her grandmother, and how traumatic it was for them, her grandmother actually had a heart attack. Not only did this brave man help save lives that day, he did it with a broken neck, from falling out of a bucket onto bricks and rubbish at the bottom of a building. He didn't find out about his neck until after he had worked endless hours helping others. My daughter said that she didn't realize until today, the terrible impact of this terrifying and violent act, until she talked to someone who actually had family there, and who lived it. What a courageous man, I don't think we can ever thank these brave men and women enough. They are in my prayers today, and always.
"Above all, we must realize that no arsenal or no weapon in the arsenals of the world is so formidable as the will and moral courage of free men and women."
Hugs and Blessings,
