TO ALL MILITARY, POLICE OFFICERS, EMS WORKERS AND FIREFIGHTERS A HEARTFELT THANK YOU
KLT | 9-28-01 | KLT

Posted on 09/28/2001 1:56:50 PM PDT by KLT

I know, we have many military, police officers, EMS Workers and Firefighters who are on these threads. On behalf of my family, friends and all the people I know in the area of Ground Zero, I want to take the opportunity to thank all of you for your excellent services, sensitivity and sacrifices from the bottom of our hearts.

You've been so unbelievably helpful and supportive working long hours and being in conditions that one's imagination cannot ever envision.

God Bless You and I cannot express the measure of our gratitude for your outstanding service.

Don't forget the steel workers that are cutting the beams that held the World Trade Towers up before being hit. I have talked with several that wander through my neighborhood (I live 1/2 mile from what was the WTC) trying to find a place to eat. Their stories of having to stop every 5 minutes to call over for a body bag is extremely disturbing. They will be scarred for life by this experience.

There aren't words to describe the gratitude. In the middle of this horror we are still surrounded by blessings and angels. God bless them all.

Those steelworkers have been in my prayers from the moment they began the cleanup. If someone can post that picture of the angel sitting next to the fireman giving him comfort please do so. I've got it by email but am unable to post it.

Unfortunately, I can not only imagine, I have seen it with my own eyes for too long. My fiance works at #1 Chase Plaza next to what was the WTC. She is so shaken by working there that I have to ride the subway downtown from my midtown office every day to pick her up from work and bring her to our apartment near Ground Hero. Everyday she has been at work, fire alarms are set off by the dust and smoke from Ground Hero that seeps into her building which really rattles her nerves. The smell is horrible when I pick her up.

That's very thoughtful. I'm in Michigan and only work as an LEO part-time now, but I did volunteer a shift with U.S. Customs at the Detroit-Windsor Tunnel checking cars coming across. Those poor guys are working six 12-hour days a week to step up investigations and still keep the traffic flowing. All our Border Patrol and Customs agents can really use your prayers.

My sympathies go out to the victims of this brutal attack, and the approximately 200,000 Americans that no longer have jobs or paychecks.

Let's not forget Todd Beamer and the others on United Airlines flight #93 who sacrificed their lives in attempting to stop the terrorists from carrying out their evil deeds . . . perhaps saving the very life of President Bush. I hope Todd Beamer and the other heroic men receive medals of honor for their ultimate sacrifice.

My heartfelt thanks to all the rescue workers at Ground Zero and to The Heroes of flight #93.

Thanks for the flag, KLT.

GOD BLESS AMERICA BUMP!!!

Let's not forget the rescue and cadaver dogs whose loyalty to humanity has given them the determination to proceed with their most unpleasant of tasks despite paws shredded by broken glass and shards of concrete and metal.

In Native American mythology, when the Great Spirit cleft the world, dividing man from the animals, the dog leapt across the great divide to stand with mankind...on 9/11 we were reminded that some humans chose to live as animals.

There are no words to express my admiration for the courage you have shown in facing a scene worse than anything Dante could imagine--day after day--sun-up to sundown. To face horrible death and decay and return a human being is a most faith affirming thing--faith that human beings are the greatest creation in the universe and that we stand upright in the sun rather than cringing in the shadows.

You face down the catastrophe. You face down death. You make us all feel more alive.

God Bless you for the post and the flag. Words cannot express the impressive feats of bravery, heroism and dedication we have all witnessed.

I am so grateful to all of these people for demonstrating to the world what America is all about. What is truly important to our country is now "in our face" thanks to these leaders by examples. These people are the silver lining to this horrific tragedy. This terror has caused us all to love our neighbors and our country more than ever and WE WANT THE WORLD TO KNOW IT!

They are all terrific. I live across the street from the Red Cross disaster service headquarters. These people deserve our prayers as well. I brought over $20 of ice cream last weekend and hope to do the same this weekend (and every weekend). They are here from all over the country.

The women in my office (a few blocks from the WTC) are so excited to see so many manly men in the city as opposed to the pasty faced wimps that are usually around. I remarked (echoing that old song), "It's Raining Men In New York," and all agreed.
