15th Anniversary of 9/11
« on: September 11, 2016, 14:15:23 »
I know there were ceremonies today at Ground Zero and many people's minds are on the events of this day as are mine.  I think back to where I was at the  time of the attacks and all that has transpired since then.  My thoughts go out to you America especially all those who were personally affected by that day.  :salute:

I'm just like the CAF, I seem to have retention issues.

Indeed. I remember thinking at some time that day, I hope God will have mercy on whoever was behind this, because the Americans won't.

Thoughts and prayers are with the victims, and the City of New York Police Officers, Firefighters and Paramedics who ran up   the stairs.

My partner and I stood on a sidewalk in the Financial District and watched people evacuate out of the skyscrapers, the court houses at Old City Hall, Osgoode Hall, University Ave., the CN Tower, and the Eaton Centre.
The American Embassy on University Ave. was also evacuated.
People were streaming towards Union Station.

We had not heard or seen any radio or TV news reports at that point.

The Department ordered every off-duty Paramedic in the City to report for duty. That was a first and, so far, last.
They sent 50 Paramedics from HQ in a convoy to NYC. I wasn't in it, but I saw them.
They were cancelled close to the US border. Not required.

Widow, daughter of fallen firefighter commemorates 9/11 anniversary at his Brooklyn firehouse locker

It's one of those old-fashioned wooden lockers the size of a small closet.

It has remained untouched these last 15-years.

I was on duty watch that day. I remember for everyone that day.
