    My heart goes out to my brothers and sisters in NYC and Washington DC. These last couple of days haven't been the same. It doesn't matter if you know them or you do. Were all one family. We need to keep our heads high and we will get through together.

    God, I can't believe this has happened in America. I guess it was a long time coming, though. Thank God, FDNY has so many good and courageous men & women to face the challenge. I am nauseous as I watch the carnage on t.v., knowing that I have lost a close friend and countless brothers & sisters. I dread getting my dress blues from the cleaners as I go to another funeral for my fallen comrades. My eyes well up as I think of seeing his wife and children, thinking of my own family. I can only hope & pray that FDNY pull more survivors out. As I sit here writing this, CBS has stated that 5 firefighters were found alive, 2 days after the initial collapse. God, please let them find hundreds more. Watch over these rescuers & give them the mental & physical strength. God Bless America & Bless Police, Fire, & EMS of NY & EVERYWHERE!!!!!!

    I was just watching the news and 3 more firefighters were just pulled out alive from the rubble in NYC. My thoughts and prayers go out to the victims and their families of this horrible attack. I also hope that God watches over for the rest of the firefighters, police officers, and paramedics as they continue the rescue efforts. My deepest sympathies go out to the New York City Fire Department. If you need any assistance, just sound the alarm and we will be there.

    As the daughter of a Volunteer Firefighter who is retired from the police service, I know what every child feels as their parent goes on Duty. It is a mixture of pride and knowing that he or she may not make it back home that night. I consider myself very blessed that my father has always returned home. I know how I would feel if I had lost my father on any shift, my heart and prayers as well as those of the people I work with, go out to those who have lost family members on duty during this terrible occasion. I hope that those who are searching for survivors realize that everyone that they bring out of the sites, those who make it and those who don't, will answer the biggest question thier families are asking right now. Where is my loved one. I hope that you find some peace in that fact.

    God be with those who are still missing and those who are still searching for answers.

    For those who are wondering about my 4 friends, I know that 3 are safe. One of the three, Captain David Loper, lost his ENTIRE company. He reportedly suffered a concussion and messed up his knee and arm -- and, as a true FDNY Firefighter, he reportedly went back to the site.

    My friend Lisa, who lives in England, sends her love and thoughts, as well. Like the others on this posting, she says the pictures on the TV are surreal and she can't believe it happened.

    Words cannot express the depth of the sadness we feel at this horrific loss. This page from our web site is dedicated to all our Brothers lost in New York, and to all those left crying at home.
    May God ease your sorrow.

    Brother when you weep for me
    Remember it was meant to be
    Lay me down and when you leave
    Remember I'll be at your sleeve
    In every dark and choking hall
    I'll be there as you slowly crawl
    On every roof in driving snow
    I'll hold your coat and you will know
    In cellars hot with searing heat
    At windows where a gate you meet
    In closets where young children hide
    You know I'll be there at your side
    The house from which I know respond
    Is overstaffed with heroes gone
    Men who answered one last bell
    Did the job and did it well
    As fireman we understand
    That death's a card dealt in our hand
    A card we hope to never play
    But one we hold there anyway
    That card is something we ignore
    As we crawl across the weakened floor
    For we know that we're the only prayer
    For anyone that might be there
    So remember when you wipe your tears
    The joy I knew thoughtout the years
    As I did the job I loved to do
    I pray that thought will see you through
    --unknown

    God Bless America

    Having seen the effects of this tragedy has devistated me. It is totally beyond my understanding how something like this could happen. I can only hope we learn from this all. May God continue to keep watch over all of us and see us through this truly difficult time. God Bless our firefighters. I will continue to pray for them and their families.

    SPECIAL PUBLIC SAFETY RIBBONS
    Following the original e-mail sent in regards to the display of blue, black, and red ribbons on all Fire Department vehicles in Lawrence Kansas there have been several questions asked that I hope this follow-up message will explain. First, the choice of color combinations was done intentionally to separate these ribbons from others that will be displayed. I have heard of all types of combinations of ribbon colors with of course red, white, and blue seeming to be the most popular. I feel red, white, and blue is very appropriate and I do also display that on my personal vehicle with the Public Safety ribbon. However, there is a need in my opinion for us to be able to distinguish the Public Safety losses in our own personal way.
    Firefighters, Law Enforcement Officers, and EMS Professionals are themselves a world wide family. As with all families we do not seem to get along all of the time but when the alarm sounds there is nothing any one of us would not do for the other. In our eyes and in the eyes of the nation all of our fallen brothers and sisters are and should be called HEROES. However, I know that if we could ask any of our fallen right now they would tell everyone they do not see themselves as heroes but as a brotherhood dedicated to the greatest professions on earth. That every Public Safety professional risks their lives everyday to serve and protect the community around them. I know there is not one of us out there who would not have answered the alarm, because that is what we do. I also know that almost everyone in our family wishes to be in New York right at this moment digging through the rubble with bear hands to reach our brothers and sisters.
    Please show support for your community and our nation every way that you can. But I also hope everyone will participate in the use of the Public Safety ribbons to distinguish all of us that have suffered such staggering losses in our own "Family".
    In the making of the ribbons I simply tried to find Ĺ" wide cloth ribbon that seemed more durable. All were cut about 12" to 14" long and placed with the black ribbon in the middle. I then used a small wire tie in the middle then placed a larger unconnected wire tie in and tightened the smaller one around the ribbons and larger wire tie. The larger wire tie was then used to secure the ribbons around vehicle antennas, light bars, door handle, front grills, ladders, handrails, bells, or wherever they could be seen on all sides of the vehicles. When tightening the small wire tie either the blue or the red ribbon can placed more on the outside to make it more service specific. Also melting the ends slightly will keep them from unraveling so much in the wind.
    Keep all of our brother, sisters, and their loved ones in your prayers and stay safe,

    My heart goes out to all of my lost brothers and sisters in the FDNY as well as their families and friends. Also my fellow military personnel who lost their lives at the Pentagon. As well as all the innocent civilians.
    I just hope that they will find some survivors and that our country will rise up and punish all of those that are responsible.
