It's hard to believe that it has been 17 years already. The day seems like yesterday.
We shall never forget the 343 firefighters who lost their lives on September 11, 2001. See the full list of names and photographs of those firefighters who lost their lives HERE.
I don't know what it is about the number, but 343 shows up in my life almost on a daily basis in many forms. Whether the time is 3:43 PM, Room #343 in the department where I work, mathematics (7 x 7 x 7), or a page number. These all serve as just a subtle reminder of the sacrifices that were made on that fateful day.
What were you doing on September 11, 2001 when you first heard word of the attacks? I had just started a new job a few weeks prior and our secretary brought it to our attention after hearing something on the radio. We then went to the conference room where we watched it unfold on television.
