One thought on “New Braunfels firefighters to honor Sept. 11 victims

  1. C’mon! Let’s move on already.

    How about honoring the 9/11 firefighters for the way they persevered after they were cruelly lied to by the Bush people about the cancerous dust at the WTCs that has killed many more by Cancer since the attacks. Such was the Republican version of the EPA.

    The best thing we can do for those who died at 9/11 is to not dwell endlessly on the attack. Otherwise, the ghost of Osama bin Laden will haunt us forever.
