September 11th (Superman) Letter
Dear Engine 7, Ladder 1,
I’m 13 years old. All of my life I've wanted to be a firefighter. My grandfather was a welder for the
buildings. He was also a firefighter for Engine 289, Ladder 140 in NYC until he moved up here. My dad was a professional firefighter. My grandfather is now a professional firefighter in World Trade Center . Utica
After viewing the 9/11 video I learned that it takes a true brave person to do what you firemen have done. You risked your lives for thousands of people and that's what every firefighter should be ready for.
When I thought about the video, it just made me want to become a firefighter even more to save lives and possibly become a hero like you. I think after what you've done, you firemen are the biggest heroes in my eyes. That's what I appreciate of firemen.
On the day of
9/11/01I was in class and at we had a practice fire drill. I heard about the attack in NYC. I figured it was an accident and I was terrified. At first I worried about my family, then I worried about everyone else. I couldn't sleep that night. I still think about it every once in a while. People think it's over, but I don't. The biggest thing I want to say to you is thank you!
