Please support your local,county, state & Federal Law enforcement agencies, right ???
Yes, let us remember and praise the brave efforts of those police/fire/EMT that day. But also in their honor let us seek the (unspoken, unknown) TRUTH about the events that took place day?
Exmaple: What happened to WTC Tower 7?
I woke up this morning, removed my flag from the pole, and replaced it with this one at half mast. I purchased this flag from the brother of the LT. from Engine 10 Ladder 10 outside of the firehouse next to the WTC site.
I for one will never forget the sacrifices made by those 343 men and women that perished that day for nothing more than the desire to help complete strangers. These were some of the bravest civilians to have ever served.
- Knowledge is power and there IS strength in numbers -
"Laws that forbid the carrying of arms disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes. Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man."
- Thomas Jefferson
While we mourn all who were killed, I want especially to remember, and thank, those who died rushing into the buildings to help as many escape as possible.
Law Enforcement Officers, Fire Fighters, Emergency Medical Technicians, and other First Responders.
Many of their lives were exchanged for the lives of others.

He was an inspiration to all and an amazing mentor to his students and fellow warriors.
The second was Jeff Palazzo. I knew him as a Coast Guardsman stationed with me at Governors Island, NYC. He was a Small Boat Engineer at Station New York and I worked in the Armory, I took him (and his c-workers) to the range every 6 months for semi-annual marksmanship quals with rifle, pistol and shotgun. On 9/11/01, he was still a Coast Guard Reservist and now a NYC Firefighter. He gave his life rescuing people from the WTC nine years ago, today...
"If I know that I am headed for a fight, I want something larger with more power, preferably crew-served.
However, like most of us, as I go through my daily life, I carry something a bit more compact, with a lot less power."

To those that have perished by the events of 9/11, and those that perished soon after in the resulting wars, may they find peace wherever they go.
May their families find peace as well.

Nobody remembers 9/11. I work daily with the public and how many times was I asked "What's the date today?"
Uh... It's 9/11... 9 years since...
"9 years since what...??"
