Never Forget 9/11

Today we are thinking about the 2,977 victims killed in the September 11 attacks. Of those, 412 were emergency workers in New York City who responded to the World Trade Center. This included:

  • 343 firefighters (including a chaplain and two paramedics) of the New York City Fire Department (FDNY);
  • 37 police officers of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey Police Department (PAPD);
  • 23 police officers of the New York City Police Department (NYPD);
  • 8 emergency medical technicians and paramedics from private emergency medical services; and,
  • 1 patrolman from the New York Fire Patrol

  1. YES, TODAY:
    REMEMBER THOSE WHO WERE KILLED ON 9/11;
    HONOR THE FIRST RESPONDERS AND ALL WHO HELPED SAVE LIVES IN SO MANY WAYS;
    REMIND EVERYONE THAT NO ONE KNOWS WHEN HE OR SHE WILL DIE;
    ENCOURAGE EVERYONE TO STOP HATING AND JUST START LOVING THEIR FELLOW HUMAN BEINGS REGARDLESS OF COLOR, RELIGION, DIFFERENCES;
    DO GOOD TO SELF BY BEING IN GOOD HEALTH, NO DRUGS, NO ALCOHOL, NO VAPING AND OTHER DELETERIOUS THINGS IN LIFE;
    DO GOOD TO OTHERS BY HELPING THE NEEDY, THE AGED, THE HOMELY, THE HOMELESS – TRYING TO ERADICATE THEM WILL NOT MAKE YOUR WORLD HAPPIER, QUIETER, SIMPLER OR MORE ENJOYABLE; AND
    STOP – THINK ABOUT THESE THINGS! GOD CAN MAKE YOUR LIVES BETTER, USEFUL, COMMENDABLE, HAPPIER!
