Letter to the Editor: Never Forget



Sunday, September 11, 2016, the Marco Island Fire Rescue Foundation and Marco Island Fire Rescue Department hosted a very moving 9/11 “Remembrance of Our Heroes” Ceremony. Guest speakers Police Chief Al Schettino, Fire Rescue Chief Mike Murphy, and a 9/11 survivor, spoke of the horrors of that unforgettable day, the loss of lives, and the sacrifice of the first responders who walked through death’s door to rescue others.

We are all so fortunate to live here on Marco Island. We are well protected, we have well trained police and fire rescue departments, and we Marco Islanders feel safe. We should also feel grateful and never forget.

Many thanks to Dianna Dohm, President of the Marco Island Fire Rescue Foundation, and to Jim Curran for organizing “Remembrance of our Heroes”. Well done.
