13 Years Ago...
My tribute to the lost men and women on September 11, 2001. Get comfortable; this is a reader, not a looker.
About this creation
Thirteen years ago, today, was the deadliest day on American soil since the Civil War. 2,977 innocent people were killed. Those were the Attacks of September 11th. Four planes were hijacked, two of them heading for New York City, the World Trade Center as their target, one headed to Arlington, the Pentagon as their target, and one headed to Washington D.C. with either the White House or the Capitol Building as their target. The first three planes achieved their goals, smashing into the buildings with devastating effects. Eventually, both World Trade Center 1 and 2 collapsed, trapping hundreds of people. The passengers of the fourth plane had been notified of the attacks by phone, the internet, or human transmission, and noticed they were taking a sharp turn. They realized that they were going to be the next victims, and, getting a group of extremely brave people together, they bashed into the cabin using a drink cart. The attackers decided to pull the plane down, and there were no survivors. The fourth plane had crashed in a field in Shanksville, Pennsylvania.

During the attacks, particularity the ones in New York City, thousands of emergency workers were called to the scene. The Fire Department of New York, the New York Police Department, and the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey Police Department were among the agencies to respond.

You may see that MOCpages has a large number of fire buffs and enthusiasts. I am one of them, but I also have a unique trait that only few others have. That is the devotion to the topic of law enforcement more than that of fire departments. On this day, there is a big recognition for the 343 men and women lost from the FDNY. I am not going to say they are over-recognized, as I don't think there can be such a thing as over-recognition, but I do want to say one thing. The 72 law enforcement officers who lost their lives on that fateful day are under-recognized. I have no problem with saying that. Even less that they are the paramedics, but I'm not a paramedic buff. I am here to make those 72 brave souls recognized.

You also may be wondering what the main picture is. Well, it is the start of one of the panels on which the 72 men and women who lost their lives are engraved at the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial. The figure represents an NYPD officer standing at attention. And the American flag represents, well, America, our unity, and out spirit. I will end this off saying may God bless their souls, and may God bless America.

Great tribute Joe! Like all the first responders that were there, they will not be forgotten for making the ultimate sacrifice to save a life on that tragic day. May they rest in peace.

Yes, indeed. Thank you for your comments.

Very nice tribute Joe. I do kinda agree with you on the topic of the law enforcement officers being a bit under-recognized. However, they have not been forgotten and I see many tributes which recognize them. I believe the reason for them being a bit under-recognized is the fact that the FDNY suffered a greater loss of life. All in all, every emergency responder who was there on that tragic day and every civilian who tried helping (such as the people in the boats) are all heroes in my opinion. RIP everyone who was tragically killed on 9/11/01.
