I am so sorry Lakers Fan for your loss.
Back then I was in law enforcement for the State of New York and I wasn't in the city at the time of the attack, being in Albany. My son in law was a fireman who thank God had the day off. Everyone of his buddies who were working died as his truck was stationed in Red Hook Brooklyn and was one of the first responders to any problems at the Twin Towers. He attended funeral after funeral for weeks.
BTW, he was one of the firemen that appeared on the very first Saturday Night Live that was telecast following the tragedy.
We should all get on our knees tomorrow and pray for all who died.
