Thank you for your service to our community, and sorry you're going through this without the proper support.
On that day you also went to help anyone. So thank you for your service

I just went to my uncle's bedside, and I didn't make it out of midtown. I didn't run towards the fire like many of the EMS/FDNY/Hatzolah/NYPD/PAPD did.

I was in 6th grade in Brooklyn and remember seeing/smelling the smoke, and unfortunately one of my classmates grandfather (Mr. Illiowitz) passed away there.
BTW I also remember the Arabs dancing in the street near BP...
If it benefits even just one fellow DDFer, its worth posting it.

I remember reading a story of someone who got out of the buildings and was walking north, wanting to call home, but there were long lines at every payphone. At a cetain point, he realized that the people at the upcoming payphone were clean, in contrast to his dust-coated figure. He went to the front of the line. No one considered stopping him.

No arguing on something like this. We just have different views on what a miracle is and that is fine.
Do you believe there is such a thing as a miracle?
What is it?

I read Dan's post and a few of the comments.
and thought:  I don't have time or emotions for this today, it's Friday, I have stuff to do.  I'll cry on the yortzeit.  But tomorrow is 23 Elul - the yortzeit.
So I guess I'll have to do some reliving and crying today.  So hard!
