Forgotten Heroes


It's a shame that it takes a tragedy for us to remember and recognize our true heroes.
Not an athlete who gets paid millions just to play a game.
Not a singer or actor.
But the forgotten heroes.
The men and women who put their lives on the line, day in and day out, doing what they love.
Risking their health and safety to help others, just to support their families.
Their families, who dread that late night phone call and told their loved ones are not coming home.
They are just everyday people, doing their jobs.
Yet they always go beyond their call of duty.
Their bond of brotherhood should be an example to us all.
So now, more than ever, they are truly,
New Yorks Bravest and New Yorks Finest.
Let's take a moment out of our lives to remember and thank,
our forgotten heroes.

' Thank you to those who gave some, and some who gave all'
