An Additional Thought on 9/11

Sometimes, in my web wanderings, I come across a page, a video, that reflects that the author GETS IT.

This fellow, whose page, The History Guy, often reflects occasions of valor, of courage, of dedication to duty, gives me every indication that he, himself GETS IT.

Today, 13 September, he reprised an episode from 11 September 2019, with a new introduction. I guess my allergies were acting up, because I wept.

He devoted something like two full minutes scrolling the name of every FDNY member who died doing their duty, that clear, sunny September day.

Say their names. Know their sacrifice. Honor their memories.

  1. At the Fern Township cemetery in Hubbard county Minnesota they have a ceremony on Memorial Day where they read the names out loud of every veteran buried there.

  2. Then there is the different roll. Those who survived and then have died due to the dangers of the Pile and of the Pentagon.

    And the ones who, though their bodies are alive, they are dead inside.

    The deaths continue.
