9/11 Memorial Service and Unveiling at Brooklyn Heights Firehouse: Engine Company 205 / Ladder Company 118
"To those of us who lived through it, there's no need for a special anniversary," said John Sorrentino, now retired from Engine Co. 205, who spoke to the gathering. "We've gotten through this as a family. Why? Two words: Never forget."
A slide show was running as part of the memorial. The men are all still so young and strong, while we have gotten ten years older.
This will lift your mood -- It's a sincerely moving video from State Farm, which partnered with director Spike Lee to film this tribute to thank the heroes of New York. Nearly 150 school children from the New York City area visited four firehouses, including the Middagh Street house, and sang the New York song.
