September 11th (Superman) Letter


April, 2002

Dear Engine 7, Ladder 1,

Hello I am in the 7th grade and attend Edmeston Central School. You have taught me that to be a hero you need to have courage and respect for people you know and for strangers. Also you have taught me about dedication.

My class watched the documentary 9/11. I just want to say that I am proud of all the firefighters that died and survived. Viewing the film has changed my attitude and point of view toward people, especially people who work to secure our country.

I am very proud of all the firefighters. You all went up not knowing what was going on outside the doors of the Twin Towers. You went up knowing there was a 50/50 chance of surviving. Since you are dedicated to saving innocent lives you are heroes. Your friends that didn't survive go down as heroes too.

Thank you for all the effort and work you do to keep our country safe.
