In front of my building on Riverside Drive and West 100th street stands a monument to New York City's firefighters, the Firemen's Memorial, dating from 1913. Every year on September 11th New York's firefighters march down the block accompanied by mournful bagpipes, convening at the monument for a remembrance ceremony. After the ceremony I sit on the bench in front of the wreaths and recall the faces of those men who walked into the towers moments before the concrete and asbestos exploded onto them. Anger overtakes my sadness before long. 343 firefighters died in the collapse of the WorldTradeCenterTowers. Another 345 firefighters who worked to recover bodies at the site in the weeks that followed 9/11 have died from obscure forms of cancer. Most were young men, under 40 years old. In total 688 New York City firefighters were killed by the collapse of the trade towers

There were no corpses found in that rubble, only bone fragments and human dust, Did they suffer? Did they die in pain or was it over in an instant? What did they feel as their bodies were being pulverized into dust mid-air; as they were being cremated alive. A cauldron of molten steel flowed like lava in the pit beneath for months after 9/11. Yet we are told to believe that no thermite-laced explosives were planted in those towers during the two prior weekends when the towers were closed to the public, that no bunker buster bombs were placed in the sub-basements. right.
