Reminders.....

 This is the sculpter left from the 9/11  .....it is different than when it was at the twin towers. The people of NYC wanted to keep it as it is now.
 Ted is standing in front of a little fire station . It was a block from our hotel. Our guide told us that every firefighter from this station died in the 9/11 attacks on the twin towers. These plaques are in their memory.
This fire station was amoung the first responders. Sad day for NYC and for America. xo

  1. So sad. Those firemen had no idea what was to happen and they didn't think twice. Heros for sure.

  3. I agree with Beth, they were all heroes. I haven't been there since the year following the attack, and it looks quite different now. Thank you for sharing these, it is a good reminder of those who perished.
