“When we say we will never forget, we mean what we say,”
President Obama said recently during a stop at “Pride of Midtown Firehouse” , en route to a wreath laying at the site where the World Trade Center towers once stood. Located in midtown at 48th Street and Eighth Avenue, the “Pride of Midtown Firehouse” — one of the busiest in the world — lost 15 firefighters, out of a total of 343 who died in the attack on Sept. 11, 2001. The President greeted each member of the company and then stopped to examine a plaque bearing the names of those who gave their lives on 9/11.
“This is a symbolic site of the extraordinary sacrifice that was made on that terrible day,” the President told company members.
