Wow, I can’t believe you said that. Were you THERE? Do you understand what these people did? I can’t believe how blithely some of you are discounting these brave folks. I’d like to see you rush into a crumbling or flaming building to save lives when everyone around you is running away.
I KNOW people who were there that godforsaken day. Do YOU?

So, you are saying that some did their job and others did not and those that did are special? Or that doing their job was somehow more than was expected?
How does running into the WTC differ from running into a burning building?
You need to divorce your emotion from the content of the debate.
I know people who were there ... some who died.
Some who lived, including immediate family members, are hoping for BIG cash windfalls. These family members took civil service tests and waited on lists to get appointed to the FDNY for the sole purpose of running into burning buildings. They make excellent salaries and have great benefits ... and they want more.
