Monday's parting shot

After 9/11 ceremonies today, members of FDNY's Engine Company 28, Ladder 11 on Second Street gathered at the recently opened Joey Bats Cafe around the corner on Avenue B. 

They were joined by some FDNY members from other NYC station houses ... as well as some visiting firefighters, including from Oakland, Calif. 

Six members of Engine Company 28, Ladder 11 died at the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001. In total, 26 firefighters from the four East Village station houses died on 9/11; 343 total citywide that day.

Let’s recognize all who were present: from the busboys in the restaurant, to the fruit seller at the base of the towers, to the first responders who ran upstairs to fight the flames while the occupants flooded out.

Why honor them is because they ran towards the danger. We mourn a the collective group.
