9-26-12As I visited Firehouses in communities across the United Stated, most every one of them had some form of memorial to honor those who gave their lives on 9/11. Many of the memorials, have as the centerpiece, a piece of steel which was used as the framework in the towers. Some of these massive girders were twisted and bent from the tremendous force placed upon them, serving as a reminder of the devastating loss which took place that day.
In today’s photo, at Engine 50 Ladder 19 Battalion 26, a small flat piece of steel with bent struts from one of the towers was affixed to the front of the Firehouse. The word “remembers” is welded into its rusted surface. A simple bouquet was left attached to honor the memory of those who lost their lives. A very powerful gesture of remembrance.
