  • "Us Guys"

    I just watched an increadibly moving movie called "Us Guys". It is about 9\11 and how a Fire Captain and a journalist met because he had eight eulogies to write on his ladder company.

    As an EMT the stories hit so close to home for me. As the captain said "these guys aren't heros. Most of them you wouldn't even know when they walked in the door" I could relate that's the people I know. People used to not "notice" us. You drive by it's just a fire house but they take for granted the people inside. But, because of 9/11 we are the "heroes". But, as I have talked to many of my friends and its in agreement we are not the "heroes" those that died that terrible day are. We now notice that they have not walked through the door. Or made their horrible meal when it was their turn to cook. It's the little things that hurt the most.

    I just ask that if you get a chance watch it. It would be a dishonor to those who died if we forgot what they did on that faithful day.

    I saw that a while ago. It was a great movie. My entire family sat and watched it.
