Thirteen years ago today was the largest loss of firefighters lives in one incident in the United States. 343 firefighters lost their lives attempting to save others’ lives.
A list of the firefighters can be found on Wikipedia. Please go to that list, look through it and say a prayer for the families of these brave people.
There are also hundreds upon hundreds who have succumbed to illnesses since 9/11 for the work they did on scene after the initial collapses.
