Today is the third anniversary of the terrorist attacks that felled the twin towers of the World Trade Center. If you want to read my story of my experiences on that day, you can go here.

Earlier this summer, Russell, my brother, and his roommate Steve (his nickname is Boob, for some reason, so that's what we call him) decided that they wanted to become volunteer firemen. Russell loves it so much that he's probably going to do it full time once he graduates from the academy. I'm really proud of his for doing this, but I worry about his and Boob's safety. I've been watching Rescue Me and I have visions of Russell becoming a bitter alcoholic like Denis Leary (yeah, I know I'm dramatic).

Today his house had a memorial service for the fire fighters that died at the World Trade Center. Here are some of the pictures from the service. As always, click to embiggen.
