9/11 - Thanks, Eric.

Today we're all probably remembering.

I know you were there and you're still paying the price.

I just wanted to say thank you, sir.

I agree with both of you. I'd like to thank you too Eric, and all our Police, Firefighters and Military for serving and protecting the citizens of this country. My hats off to all of you. Thank you.

Sept 11 happens to be my Wife and I's wedding aniversary (19 years) and like most, I remember where we were that day and everything that happened, and I never will forget. My daughter was only 6 months old at the time and I remember feeling the scared for her and her future. I don't want to turn this political but I'm sad to see where this country is 11 years after.

X4. Not an easy job and not always a great outcome . A tough job that oftentimes goes unrecognized, unrewarded, and unappreciated. But people of great courage and integrity are doing it anyway, day in and day out, making the world a better place at their own sacrifice.

Yes, thank you Eric. I didn't know you were there. I'll never forget how hectic it was that day. I was living Hicksville, NY. Not far from NYC. We sat glued to the TV feeling scared and helpless. From work I could see and smell the smoke. I can't imagine what it must have been like for those at Ground Zero. Thank You.

Interesting. We were supposed to be married on Sept.11 (19yrs ago too). But, another couple beat us to that date. We were married on the 18th instead. I must say, I'm glad it was moved.

9/11 will never be forgotten, nor should it. It was a day when some thugs took out a bunch of innocent people. I pray we never have to go thru that again. We need to continue to pray for all the family's who lost loved ones that day and for the people who survived and struggle with physical and emotional issues......

Thank you Eric and all others that helped that day. Is that how Eric got the sickness he is battling now? That sucks.
