I cannot let go of this and I suspect there are many like me: Tears of rage well up even now. The city of New York has released transcripts of the finest people in America at the time of the attack on the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001:
"A rich vein of city records from Sept. 11, including more than 12,000 pages of oral histories rendered in the voices of 503 firefighters, paramedics, and emergency medical technicians, was made public this morning."
The NY Times has also made available sound files (MP3 and Real) and transcripts of the NYFD dispatch transmissions from 8:46 a.m. to 11:50 a.m. on that morning. I have downloaded them all and you can too. Even now, almost four years later, this is still heart-breaking. Don't forget those lost at the Pentagon in Washington, DC and in the field in Pennsylvania.
