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
