    Our deepest sympathy to all those who had loved ones involved in todays tragedies. Our prayers and thoughts go out to those who lost loved Fathers, mothers, brothers and sisters. As a firefighter from New Mexico I feel a great pain for the Men and Women of the New York Fire Dept. and Washington Fire Dept. Every Firefighter from across this great nation has lost a brother and sister during this tragedy even though I have never met anyone from the New York Fire Dept. or the Washington Fire Dept. all firefighters are my brothers and sisters. Once again our deepest sympathy.

    Our thoughts are with you as are our prayers.I have nothing to say that can help ease the pain.I am in a state of shock myself from hearing the stories of New Yorks Bravest and their brothers in arms over in the NYPD.
    Truly an event of this magnatuide has never before been seen and hopefully never will be seen again.
    To those families and friends of our brothers lost today,may you find peace in the knowledge that we are thinking of you and are willing to help in any way in this our hour of need.
    May God bless the FDNY.

    I can't even begin to fathom the true gravity of today's happenings in NYC. For all of the innocents who lost their lives in this cowardly act of terrorism I feel great sorrow. For my distant brothers, the bravest of the FDNY who gave their all battling hell on earth, I will surely shed a tear or two tonight. It looks like over 200 heroes answered their last alarm today, and there are thousands more on scene struggling through the ongoing battle. There's not much I can say . . . I just hope that if the devil ever knocks on my door, I can answer with the sheer bravery and true heroism of those who responded today.

    My thoughts and prayers go out to the families of Chief of the Department Pete Ganci, 1st Deputy Commissioner Bill Feehan, Battalion Chief Ray Downey, Department Chaplain Father Mychal Judge and the 265 other missing, and presumed dead, members of FDNY. It's just to sad for words...

    I am from a German fire department. Last year me and some colleagues visited NY, where a fire fighter I got to know via internet gave us a tour through this fascinating city a whole day. He took us to places a normal tourist wouldn't see, among them was also the WTC and its fire department, engine 10 and ladder 10 where we got some coffee.
    In every FDNY station we visited we were welcomed and we were overwhelmed by so much hospitality. I can figure out that some of the guys we talked to aren't among us anymore.
    It is hard to find the right words to express the pain you feel when hearing that so many fire fighters and others have lost their lives because of a cowardly attack of insane people.
    I won't give up the hope that my friends, whose email addresses I have, are all well. I tried to contact them, but there was no reply till now. All I can do now is wait, sometimes look at the list of those who died on sept. 11th 2001 in the hope that I won't read their names.

    it is so hard to know what to say in this situatuion. I just want to give all my thoughts and prayers to victims and their families. It is a dark day for firefighters, but all firefighters that have survived, you must now wear your badge as high and as proud as you can, to show your love for our fallen brothers. i am wearing my dress blues all day today, to show that i still care, and always will. FDNY WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN, MAY YOU REST IN PEACE AND MAY GOD PROTECT YOU WITH HIS LOVING HAND.

    I've never been to NY . Infact never been to the US. But I've been a Firefighter. Eventhough now I have left the service but deep in my blood I'm still a firefighter. My deepest condolences to all families and friends of our fallen brothers and sisters. Be brave..

    My name is SEan. I am a firefighter from GA. I would like to offer my prayers to the families of the brave men and women who lost their lives on Tuesday. Many folks ask me especially after the events of this week why do firefighter's run into buildings they may collapse. To that I answer it's their job, but more importantly it's their way of life. It's what makes these brave folks who they are. Every firefighter in the country that isn't there would give anything to be there to help search, rescue and recover their fellow brothers. Firefighters through the world are standing proud with the men and women of the F.D.N.Y..
    I would like to offer this prayer. And I am sure that firefighters everywhere has said this prayer at least once this past week.

    Firefighter's Prayer

    When I'm called to duty God
    wherever flames may rage
    grant me the strenght to save a life
    whatever be its age

    Help me to embrace a little child
    before it is too late
    or save an older person
    from the horror of that fate

    Enable me to be alert
    to hear the weakest shout
    and quickly and efficiently
    put the fire out

    I want to fill my calling Lord
    and give the best in me
    to guard my every neighbor and
    protect his property

    And if according to your will
    I am to lose my life
    God bless with your protecting hand
    my children and my wife

    I am deeply sadened and angry for the loss of such a huge amount of innocent life on Sept 11. I have the families and friends of all of Americas Heroes in my prayers as well as all of the people helped and affected by this tragic event. I choke up and am sick to my stomach everytime I see the News update or a Black band on a Badge. I know America and the world will never forget all of the Brave Heroes who have fallen on that day, and we all hold their ultimate sacrafice of helping others as a strength for our Pride and Courage. May GOD bless our fallen Heroes and may He bless all of those they have helped and who have suffered during this evil time.

    God only knows the pain we feel. I can never express the aching of my heart at this time. It is like 400 members of my own family were suddenly taken away forever, and we will never, ever be the same after this. The heartache will be longer and more difficult than anything we have ever dealt with, but with faith we can make it through. I take great comfort in the inspiration these brothers and sisters have given me. Their heroic efforts will NEVER EVER BE FORGOTTEN BY ANYONE!!The people responsible for this heinous act will not go unpunished, and America will stand taller and prouder than it ever has before! I grieve for the innocent lives lost, but I know in my heart that if it were not for our heroes, thousands more would be dead at this time. The media said what we all know to be true when we do the job that we love so very much- they were running in while everyone else ran out. They were doing the job. And because of their efforts, lives were saved. Saving life and property is what we do IN THAT ORDER!May God have mercy on their souls, and welcome them home into his everlasting peace and love, saying
    Well done thy good and faithful servant.
    May God be with all of the families and friends of all who were lost, and also with those bravest who continue the search. We will wear our badges with a mourning ribbon until the last body of our fallen is recovered. THE FIREFIGHTERS OF WASHINGTON PARISH FIRE PROTECTION DISTRICT #8 WILL NEVER FORGET THE COURAGE AND BRAVERY OF OUR DEAR BROHTERS AND SISTERS. GOD BLESS THEM ALL, AND GOD BLESS THE USA!!
