On September 26th 2017, I was part of a rotary club sponsored trip that sent 25 Police and 25 Fire Fighters from my city to ground zero, 9/11 memorial museum and One World Trade. What we saw and experienced was absolutely heart wrenching and is very difficult to describe. To stand at the very spot where so many of my brothers and sisters made the ultimate sacrifice doing the job that so many of us do everyday was hard to process and imagine what everyone went through on 9/11/01. I stood between the two reflection pools and looked up in the sky and it was very hard to imagine that 16 years prior all of the destruction and lives that were senselessly lost on that very spot. God bless all of the first responders who lost their lives that day as well as the ones who are to this day dealing with the aftermath that they have experienced mentally and physically. God bless you Trooper, god speed and RIP.
