Suspenders Bar is the place to meet up with NYFD and other FDs from around the world on days like today. Buy a hero a drink while you're there.
Some Canadians still don't get the enormity of 911. Perhaps understandable, but highly unlikely.
There comes a time in each generation that a tragedy has changed people for a generation. IN 1941, it was the tremendous loss at Pearl Harbour. In Japan, it was Hiroshima. In 1963, it was a dark November after the Kennedy assassination. Still for some it was April '68 when poor Martin left us.
For me, in my time, it will always be 911.
