September 11th (Superman) Letter


April, 2002

Dear Engine 7, Ladder 1,

I am a seventh grade student at Edmeston Central School. We watched the 9/11 documentary in class. I feel what you did on September 11th was very courageous. I was in school that day. Our math teacher walked into class and said something had happened at the World trade Center. When we got to social studies the news was on. They were showing the buildings falling down. It scared me.

After seeing 9/11 I realized how lucky I was not to lose any of my family members. I'm sorry for your losses. I can't imagine how you felt being inside the Towers, but I really appreciate all of the things you do. I don't think I would ever have been able to do what you did that day. You have shown us all what a true hero is. A hero isn't Superman. A hero is you.

What you did that day is unforgettable. You risked your lives for complete strangers. I don't think anyone who saw what you did would feel any different. It takes a lot to do what you did and I admire you for that, thank you.
