    As a firefighter veteran it is difficult to see such a devastating loss of Ems personnel as well as the many private citizens. Our thoughts are with the families and friends of all that have lost their lives in this tragedy. It is times like this we need to all pull together and pray for the safe return of as many human lives as possible.

    You lived up to your name today, New Yorks Bravest. Can not possibly imagine what you are going through. As seen on TV here in Australia, your will to carry on in these extreme circumstances is a credit to you all,thinking of you all in this terrible time

    Take Care.

    Our thoughts and prayers, go out to the families of the brave men and women from the FDNY - that have fallen in the line of duty. And to the valiant men and women that must persevere in protecting human life - while grieving the loss of their colleagues.

    This is a moment of incredible disaster upon our fellow brothers and sisters in Emergency Services.
    This is a moment where everyone has to stand together to comfort those who lost their loved ones.

    With all that has been going on it reminded me of something that was sent to me several years ago and I think it is worth repeating.

    The Creation of the Firefighter
    When the Lord was creating Firefighters, he was into his sixth day of overtime when an angel appeared and said, "You’re doing a lot of fiddling around on this one."
    And the Lord said "Have you read the specification on this person? Firefighters have to be able to go for hours fighting fires or tending to a person that the usual every day person would never touch, while putting in the back of their mind the circumstances. They have to be able to move at a second's notice and not think twice of what they are about to do, no matter what danger. They have to be in top physical condition at all times, running on half-eaten meals, and they must have six pairs of hands."
    The angel shook her head slowly and said, "Six pairs of hands...no way."
    "It's not the hands that are causing me problems, " said the Lord, "it's the three pairs of eyes a Firefighter has to have."
    That's on the standard model? asked the angel.
    The Lord nodded. " One pair that sees through the fire and where they and their fellow Firefighters should fight the fire next. Another pair here in the side of the head to see their fellow Firefighters and keep them safe. And another pair of eyes in the front so that they can look for the victims caught in the fire that need their help."
    "Lord" said the angel, touching his sleeve, " Rest and work on this tomorrow."
    "I can't, said the Lord, "I already have a model that can carry a 250 pound man down a flight of stairs and to safety from a burning building, and can feed a family of five on a civil service paycheck."
    The angel circled the model of the Firefighter very slowly, "Can it think?"
    "You bet," said the Lord. It can tell you the elements of a hundred fires; and can recite procedures in their sleep that are needed to care for a person until they reach the hospital. And all the while they have to keep their wits about themselves. This Firefighter also has phenomenal personal control. They can deal with a scene full of pain and hurt, coaxing a child's mother into letting go of the child so that they can care for the child in need. And still they rarely get the recognition for a job well done from anybody, other than from fellow Firefighters."
    Finally, the angel bent over and ran her finger across the cheek of the Firefighter.
    "There's a leak", she pronounced. "Lord, it's a tear."
    "What's the tear for?" asked the angel.
    "It's a tear from bottled-up emotions for fallen comrades. A tear for commitment to that funny piece of cloth called the American Flag. It's a tear for all the pain and suffering they have encountered. And it's a tear for their commitment to caring for and saving lives of their fellow man!"
    "What a wonderful feature Lord, you're a genius" said the angel.
    The Lord looked somber and said "I didn't put it there."

    "While everyone else rushes out, they rush in"

    Never before in the history of our country have those words held such an impact. Today those words were exemplified with the lives of so many rescue workers. The tears flow freely and my heart is so heavy with sadness, yet I know these men and women would not have had it any other way. I am so grateful to them and thier families for what they've given us, true heroes.

    There are no words to express my feelings and thoughts when I was getting the first impressions of this incredible act of terrorism against the US people. I am really shocked, and so are my friends, colleagues and my fellow firefighters here in Gladbeck, Germany, and the whole nation.

    Helpless, thousands of miles away, we are watching the brave emergency teams who are helping the innocent victims of this terrible disaster.

    I want to express my deepest feelings of sympathy to those who lost their lifes in the duty of rescue, to those, who suddenly became victims of this act of terrorism, to their families and friends and to those who are still fighting for the victims' lifes, not loosing hope!

    May God be with them!

    Christoph,
