I was just doing some research on the September 11th attacks, in preparation for a community service of remembrance that we hold in conjunction with our local fire company.

I wanted updated numbers and came across this website. It impressed me, and I thought others might be interested in it.

Thanks, SpaCity. I did the same. I want to go back and check out pictures and bios. This is as much of an official site as there is on this.

ChaplainKeppy, you may want to have a look at this page too, thought you might like to read the poems.

Det. Joe Vigiano NYPD ESU and his brother FF John Vigiano FDNY both died that day. I can't talk about this... I just thought you might like to use one of the poems in your service.


Ne conjugare nobiscum.

Merda taurorum animas conturbit.

There's no "I" in team... But there's two in idiot.

Chappy- I started with the pics/bios. Didn't take long to get emotional thinking of the people sacrificed. I may have to do this in installments, the sense of loss is overwhelming. This is the best site I've seen so far.

Thanks, mlar, I'll check it out.

SpaCity, pictures and bios really do bring it home, don't they?

Time.com has some amazing photos in their photoessay area: "Shattered"; "Terror Hits Home"; "The World Reacts"

It is a solemn thing, to remember-- a dangerous thing to forget.

It does put into perspective why we have our military bro's and sis's fighting and dying "over there". Maybe to keep this type of thing from happening more frequently. Anybody remember how great it was to be a cop for a few months after the attack? Now??? Never forget, huh? Maybe some of that to the civilian population. Nice site, though, and thanks Chappy, poignant as ever.
