Met many Hero's in the past week

Thursday, September 29, 2011

I am working at a seasonal Inn, up state NY,for salmon season which is 7 weeks long..
We get many out of town people all men & there son's who love catching the big salmons that are in Salmon River..
Little did I know till last night while talking to a few guys at the restaurant that they are NYFD,YES they were very much a part in 911..

I met men who lost part of there team & some who just missed by a hair getting out of the first tower as it fell.

I am so HONORED to be cooking for these great men who searched for the people who lost there life's & ones who were saved..

I have learned that I will be meeting many more as this season goes on & YES I am very much looking for this..
OH I also handed out Sparkpeople, cards!! YES I sure did!
Some wanted them for them self others for there wives I told them that they both can do this together.

Hi Chris
What a beautiful blog. That would be such a honor to meet these heroes. Each one of them did their best trying to save others.
It is nice that you will meet more before the season is over.
I think it is great that you passed out Spark cards, that was a good idea.

Thank you for sharing

    How blessed to hear first hand the stories of a horrific tragedy. I'm glad you had the opportunity to serve those who serve the community. It's almost like giving back in a small way. emoticon emoticon
