I was in school when the WTC was attacked. The principal came over the intercom and told us to turn it on to channel 2. I called my mom and told her and she didn’t believe me, Later on that night my fire department got called out to to the New York, but we didnt have the extra man-power. So we stayed behind. Now i wish i could have went, I dont know what went through the fire fighters’ minds when they arrived, but what went through mind was, I hope nothing else bad happens. New York will never be the same, but what I know is that the Fire Departments, Police, EMS’, and HazMat and other emergercy personnel, who died and who survived will be the HEROES on that day, we will never forget them; well at least I won’t. The attacks made an impact on our lives, but the real HEROES are them, the ones who went to the call and died and who survived. To all those who went to the call on Sept 11, you are my HEROES.
