On September 11th 2001 I was on a U.S. Naval ship in Japan about to get underway. I ended up spending a few more years in the Navy working hard and doing what I wanted to do. I missed out on seeing anything that happened during that time in the states. TV was very limited and news was limited on the ship. We were on a blackout.
A few years ago I came across this photo, it summed up everything for me of what you can do on a motorcycle. This firefighter is a great example of what to do when you need to step up and do the right thing.
