This was posted by one of my coworkers this morning, and I fully and wholeheartedly support the brave men and women of the time, both those who were going about their day, and those who sprang into action afterwards.

It was at this very moment 7 years ago that an event which would forever change the lives of us as Americans would begin to unfold. At that very moment, FDNY battalion chief 1 Joe Pfeiffer transmitted an alarm to Manhattan Fire Alarm Dispatch relating what had happened in front of his eyes 15 seconds earlier. This event would lead to the eventual death of 2,974 people, some members of various agencies in New York and at the Pentagon, but a majority of which were civilians who were just going about their business and were just in the wrong place at the wrong time, or happened to pick the wrong flight to get on.
Let us take a moment on this day to remember these events and those who lost their lives during them.
