Where were you on September 11, 2001????

Most will never forget and the memory of what happened that day MUST be passed on to generations.  Please, Please review with you children and grandchildren.  This is our history and it will not be re-written.

I remember receiving a call from our son at about 6:10 AM California time.  He was serving in the military in Israel and told us to turn on the TV.  With shock and dismay my wife and i watched the challenges of the next hours.

Among the things I will never forget are the faces of the men and woman of the NY Fire Department and NYPD walking up the stairs in the World Trade Center.  The look on their faces told the whole story.  They knew they were “going into Harms Way” and yet they marched on.

These are the “True Heroes”.  The Firefighter’s, the Police, the Medic’s and all the First Responders.  They all have one objective “to Serve & Protect”.

As a Director of a Fire District in California, I see every day their bravery, commitment and focus.

Please see a Firefighter’s Prayer below:

Firefighter’s Prayer

When I am called to duty, God wherever flames may rage,

give me strength to save a life, whatever be its age.

Help me to embrace a little child before it’s too late,

or save an older person from the horror of that fate.

Enable me to be alert to hear the weakest shout,

and quickly and efficiently to put the fire out.

I want to fill my calling and to give the best in me,

to guard my neighbor and protect his property.

And if according to your will I have to lose my life,

bless with your protecting hand my loving family from strife. Amen

Subject: Normandy Beach-The Fallen 9,000

Unfortunately, a large percentage of our country doesn’t know of or care about Normandy.

 This year, British artist Jamie, accompanied by numerous volunteers, took to the beaches of Normandy with rakes and stencils in hand to etch 9,000 silhouettes representing fallen people into the sand. 

 Titled The Fallen 9000, the piece is meant as a stark visual reminder of those who died during the D-Day beach landings at Arromanches on June 6th, 1944 during WWII. 

 The original team consisted of 60 volunteers but as word spread nearly 500 additional local residents arrived to help with the temporary installation that lasted only a few hours before being washed away by the tide. 

 9,000 Fallen Soldiers Etched into the Sand on Normandy Beach to Commemorate Peace Day. 

 What is surprising is that nothing about this was seen here in the US.

 Someone from overseas had a friend that sent it with a note of gratitude for what the US started there.

 Please share with others who understand “freedom is not free– nor has it ever been.

What an incredible job they did.

That was a massive undertaking. Now, if it had only been publicized here as it should have been. Most of the young people of today needed to see this. They have no concept  of the extreme sacrifices made that gave them the privileges they have now.
