Firemen’s Memorial

August 6th, 2012

8-6-12The location The Kindness Bus is parked, near the Natural History Museum in Manhattan, requires that it be moved for the street sweeper. Today was that day. With that done, and the rest of my afternoon free, I thought the best use of time was to visit the Firemen’s Memorial. This nearly century old structure is set on a hillside just east of the Hudson River. It is a beautiful setting for this monument.
Once a year, in October, a ceremony is held to honor those Firefighters who have died in the line of duty during the previous twelve months. On visiting here today, I have decided to attend this sacred ceremony.
