today is a hard day for me…

today is a hard day for me.

always, it’s a 42 minute moment of silence and remembrance.

sometimes, i take solace in the fact that lady liberty wears size 879 combat boots.

… today however, as i watched the second most famous eight-in-hand in the world roll across the brooklyn bridge, it reminded me of this image.

this is fdny ladder 118, crossing the brooklyn bridge into lower manhattan.

this is their last ride.

today is about remembrance.

today is one of many times, we, as a nation, as a people, set our own bullshit aside to remember our heroes.

today, let the compassion and bravery of those who answered the call shine above all else.
