Determination 911
“As was demonstrated during the 9/11 tragedies and during other emergencies across Maryland and the Nation on an almost daily basis, the heroism and diligence of America's firefighters and first responders is crucial to the health and safety of our communities.”

—Paul Sarbanes

As a retired big city professional firefighter with 27 years service I am constantly reminded on 9/11 of the exceptional courage and sacrifice the New York firefighters exhibited that fateful day. Most of them, especially the veteran firefighters knew they probably wouldn't be coming out when they went in, but did so anyway to save the lives they could. While we tend to put overpaid sports and entertainment celebrities on a pedastal, we should really remember those who contribute directly to our well being, fire, police, medical professionals and our brave service members.

The simple thing so many New Yorkers learned that day was to say "I Love you" to those that matter, every day.
