Today is the 41st Anniversary of the Hotel Vendome Fire. 9 Boston Firefighters died (June 17th 1972). It is also the 12th Anniversary of the "Fathers Day Fire" which killed 3 FDNY Firemen (June 17th 2001). Never Forget!

I remember studying the Vendome fire in my associate degree class and then reading more about it later. Tragic loss of life. Remembering those Brothers.
I admit to being pathetically inadequately informed about the Father's Day Fire. I believe there was an explosion and collapse, but my memory is fuzzy. I mean no disrespect and believe me I will read up on this fire tonight when I get home from teaching. I can't help but feel of the many days that would be hard to lose your father at a fire this had to be at the top. Remembering these Brothers too.“The person who risks nothing, does nothing, has nothing, is nothing, and becomes nothing. He may avoid suffering and sorrow, but he simply cannot learn and feel and change and grow and love and live.” Leo F. Buscaglia
