Reflections for Police Officer Moira Ann Reddy-Smith

I was 10 years old when my father told me of the attacks that occurred while I was at recess, on the morning of 9/11/2001. Though I did not learn of the attacks until well over 7 hours after they happened, all I could think about was the victims and their families as I watched the news coverage. I knew many would be killed and that countless children would never see their parents again.

Nearly 20 years later, I still hold my Dad and siblings a little tighter. I thank you for your service and am in awe of your sacrifice.

17 years on from your death and its a day I still remember all the way from Edinburgh Scotland.

Its this sacrifice along with the others that I will never forget.

I now have 15 years service of my own. And this day in history has had a major impact on me personally and why I do what I do.

I visit your page often to pay my respects and say a little prayer for your family! Your courage and strength still amazes me! I've done some research on you over the years, not only were you the first officer to call in the attacks of 9/11, 1 of 2 female officer's to be killed that morning, but you also stopped a domestic terrorist attack in New York City in the early 90's as well while on duty. Last year your daughter read a beautiful reflection of you! Although I have never net your family I pray for them often!

Danie there was also one other female police officer who served in the rescue attempts of the 911 attacks and died that morning. Her name was Capt. Kathy Mazza of the New York Harbor Police.

I am actually a 13 year old male, I am doing a hero project for school and I was searching around and heroes of 911 popped into my head so I searched that up and all that showed up was men. I remembered that it was International Women's Day so I changed heroes of 911 to Female Heroes of 911. I came upon this page and saw that a woman named Moira Smith was the only female officer to give her life on 911. I read this page and saw what she had done and it brought a tear to my eye so I just want to thank her for her service and every other officer out there in America and the world.

I will be walking with your picture around my neck this Sunday, 9/11/16 in your memory and your honor at the 15 year anniversary remembrance 3rd annual silent 9/11 walk in Charleston S. Carolina. May you never be forgotten. I have read your story and was amazed at the hero you are. I hope you bless me as one of my guardian angels as I continue throughout my own law enforcement career. I am almost to my 17 year mark in my career as a Deputy Sheriff and through the rest of my career, your picture will remain with me at all times. I hope to represent you well. ThinBlueLine
