I agree completely with all 3 above comments. I was there also that morning, it was a moving and sincere tribute to the events that occurred and those who's lives were lost on that fateful day 9/11/01.
As I looked around at one of the biggest audiences I have seen participate in the past few years( Southern Pines Fire and Police Departments have been doing this since the 1st anniversary of 9/11), I saw many people obviously touched by the words spoken or poems read, many with tears of emotion, as was I. I am proud of not just the firefighters or the policemen who showed up to pay tribute, I am proud of everyone who came to be a part of it.
@Viper ...yes I left the rest of your name out on purpose. You are just that a.. "Viper" (I quote the definition from the dictionary) #2 seems very suiting....
1. A venomous snake (family Viperidae) with large hinged fangs, typically having a broad head and stout body, with dark patterns on a lighter background.
2. A spiteful or treacherous person. but a hateful, sad person.
Not one person was there Sunday morning for self gain,, they were there because they respect those "brothers" who paid the ultimate price. The brotherhood is a strong word.... not many understand the depths of it, I know I am blessed be part of such an amazing group of men and woman who would not only give you the shirt off their backs, but go above and beyond the call of duty to help you.
Being in the military you should understand "brotherhood" a lot more than you do... so here you go for a refresher......
1.the condition or quality of being a brother or brothers.
2.the quality of being brotherly; fellowship.
3.a fraternal or trade organization.
4.all those engaged in a particular trade or profession or sharing a common interest or quality.
5. the belief that all people should act with warmth and equality toward one another, regardless of differences in race, creed, nationality, etc.
Viper You are a sad, sad man to lash out at those who are doing their very best to remember those unbelievable events of 9/11 and those who paid the ultimate price, and those who's lives were lost for doing what they do everyday.. living and working...
Thank you Southern Pines Fire Rescue Department and Southern Pines Police Department for your beautiful tribute. Keep up the great work, and know there are many who are more thankful than we can say who appreciate what you do. God Bless you all!!
