Never Forget...

Tuesday, September 11, 2012

11 years ago on a clear sunny day like today, our country became the center of a terrorist attack. Almost 3,000 people lost their lives that day including 343 firefighters, EMT/Paramedics and Police Officers.

As an EMT, this day greatly affects me. There is a brotherhood/sisterhood among Emergency Services that I can't even describe.

I was a senior in college at Lock Haven University 11 years ago. I worked part-time as an EMT and I was part of our task force. I was placed on call in case we were called to NYC. Lock Haven is only 3-4 hrs from NYC in Northcentral PA. We didn't get called but were kept on call for a week.

    I'll never forget!! My 1st cousin's husband got stuck on the subway in NYC on that day. He very well could've been in one of the twin towers as he's a lawyer so did business in the towers. I was at work that day and was told by co-workers that since I'm not black that I didn't understand the impact.... told them "then explain to me why my 1st cousin in law was stuck on the NYC subway"

    I will never forget my four year old son coming to me, "Mommy somebody broke New York!" I couldn't move from the tv for the rest of the day. My husband is a firefighter and I remember how traumatic it was for him to watch helpless while others died. For all the families who relive this day and grieve, my prayers are with you today.
