Today is 9/11. As a firefighter, this day means a day of remembering our fallen brothers and sisters. A day reflecting on what their sacrifice means to me and my country.

This morning when I was putting on my uniform I began to reflect on the 343 lost soles that laid down their lives doing what they were called to do in the Twin Towers 15 years ago. Words cannot express my gratitude, or the pride I have serving as a firefighter in the years after that tragic day. Thank you for the many men and women that served their communities and country wearing a uniform after that day, so that me and my family will be safer today.

God Bless America.
