Weekly Photo Challenge: Admiration

Ladder 3 i

Ladder 3 – 9/11 Memorial Museum, New York

Seeing the crushed remains of Ladder 3 at the National September 11 Memorial and Museum in New York on our moving visit to the museum last year one could not help but feel an overwhelming sense of admiration and gratitude for the sacrifice and bravery of those 343 firefighters of the New York City Fire Department who were lost that day together with an additional 68 emergency workers and the 2566 innocent lives they were trying to save.
