Tomorrow is 9/11, a day of reflection for all Americans. A dozen years ago this week, the nation suffered a devastating loss—at the World Trade Center in New York City, at the Pentagon in Washington, DC, and in a lonely field in Central Pennsylvania.
Here in New York, our fire department suffered an especially cruel blow when 343 of its members ran into the burning Twin Towers and never came out again. The FDNY honors every one of those brave souls every St. Patrick’s Day when members of the Department carry 343 flags along the parade route. I share these photos today in their memory.
