Historic Franklin Square & Munson Fire District 9/11 Resolution

Whereas, the attacks of September 11, 2001, are inextricably and forever tied to the Franklin Square and Munson Fire Department;

Christopher Gioia on 9/11

Excerpt from interview with Andrew Steele:

“That’s why, after 18 years, I’m still looking for justice for my friends, because I know that there are people out there who need to be held to account. I’m not going to let go. I’m not going to let go. If I spend the rest of my life pursuing this, pursuing justice for my friends, I’m going to do that.

Now, with regards to that, being a fireman, and being a firefighter… This is for all of the firemen out there. You know it’s a brotherhood, and we’ve been trained that when you fight the fire, you go in. You don’t go in alone. You go in with your brother or your sister. You go in together, and if something happens, you come out together. You don’t leave that person behind, so I would say this.

We’re not leaving our brothers behind. We’re not leaving these people behind. These were Americans. These were firefighters, cops, EMS, and they were just ordinary people who went about their business that day. We’re not leaving them behind. We’re not forgetting about them. They deserve justice, and we’re going to see that justice is done.”

Thomas Jefferson

New York Fire Commissioner Christopher Gioia Speaks at the National Press Club in Washington DC 9/11/19

Let the word go forth from this time and place, to friend and foe alike, that the torch has been passed to a new generation of Americans, born in this century, tempered by war, disciplined by a hard and bitter peace, proud of our ancient heritage, and unwilling to witness or permit the slow undoing of those human rights to which this nation has always been committed, and to which we are committed today at home and around the world.   Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and the success of liberty.
