Quiet Please

Groundbreaking Day for the New Fire Station

Men in uniform


County Executive Aaron Reardon, thanking his firefighters

Shovels ready guys

Firefighter kids getting in on the action too

My view - my two worlds

This is why I will never forget. Each time he goes to work as an airport firefighter, each night he is away from his family. How can I forget?

September 11th is never going to pass without me remembering, without my children remembering, without the world remembering.

The incredible losses of that day will forever be a reminder of just how precious the lives of each and every one of us, everywhere, are.

It took me some time before it clicked in - today is September 11... I wonder if I will ever think of this day and the coverage and the loss and the bravery and the kindness and not cry... I doubt it.

How can someone not have the upmost respect for someone willing to run into a burning building?

Thanks to all who serve.

And this year - for the first time - I thought of your husband and his colleagues all over the world to whom we owe so much.
