    Remembering 10 Years Ago....

    During a quiet moment today I was thinking back to where I was 10 years ago and a firsthand account from Will Smithers… Not sure if I am breaking a rule by posting a link to the old NW Designs archive or not but… so be it…

    Wow. What a good, but sobering read.

    I do remember every minute of that day even though I was thousands of miles away.

    I was just pulling into the airport in SLC while listening to the radio and heard about the attack. I turned my car around and drove home absolutely horrified to watch the unbelievable drama unfold. I hope we will never forget the heroes of that day or the unbelievable tragedies that so many people suffered!

    Thank you Mark for the links, as with everyone else that day is etched in my memory and sends shivers of emotions whenever I am reminded of it.

    It's hard to put it into words, but as a firefighter we will never forget our 343 fallen Brothers from FDNY. Many were very good friends of mine.

    I was at the Sarasota Florida airport with an extra fire engine covering air force one. The president was at Booker high school for a morning speech to the students.

    I was standing beside the 2nd presidential limo watching the plane when one of the guys in the airport fire station walked out and said something just hit the first trade tower.

    Within minutes after the second tower was hit, the president was back on the plane and it took off with twin fighter jets on it's tail.

    I got this series of photos as it took off down the run way.
