It's a sad day for long island. We lost many police, firemen and first responders, as well as office workers. When ever I see a memorial I always take time to go through, read the names and say a prayer.
Personally, my grandfather lived less then a block away. My grandma worked right across the cove, even closer to the WTC. We had no idea what had happened to them for at least 24 hours.
Today also reminds me that you don't have to be special person to be a hero, there are heros in all of us! From the formen who opened the doorways in the bent stairwell, to the brave people who fought back on those planes, to the first responders and volunteers. They woke up everyday just like we did, just normal people, not realizing the hero that lies beneath.
