Photos of Ground Zero

Every year that goes by, people seem to forget what happened at Ground Zero, the Pentagon and Shanksville, PA.

Those that were directly involved, lost love ones or friends or live in NYC, will never forget. On the 9/11 anniversity, some programs may show the planes going into the towers.

I present a slide show of what happened from the attack, to the destruction and of the search efforts by the dogs teams, then show Siruis, the PAPD K9 that was killed in the attack being recovered from Ground Zero.

The slides then show the Memorial Services for Sirius at Liberty State Park in NJ. If you look at some of these photos, you may notice the Hudson River and NYC in the background. If the photos were taken prior to 9/11/01, you would have seen the World Trade Center in the background. It seemed to make the location appropriate.

Personally, I have been to a number of police funerals. The bonding of brothers coming to pay last respects and bagpipes playing Amazing Grace was always powerful. The service for Sirius was just as emotional.

We attended Sirius' memorial. which was with police honors. Not only did police departments from ali over the United States send officers, if memory serves me right, there were 120 police K9 units from across the country that attended with their dogs.

I intially had doubts about going, not sure how Timmy would react in such an envionment. Timmy made us proud, and did some interviews including CNN. We did not see any of the interviews, because with one exception, every trip to Ground Zero was a day trip with us commuting from Berwick PA.
