"September 11th, 

Instead of posting where I was on that day or 
beautiful pictures in memoriam of the fallen. 
I am spending the day thinking about each of 
you. My friends and sometimes foes. The terror 
attack on the twin towers that day was the 
ultimate demonstration of the devastation of 
hate. Hate left unchecked becomes death. There 
were Republicans, Democrats, independents, 
socialists, communist, gay, straight, American, 
foreigners, and every religion and nationality 
under the sun. All dead because of hate left 

I am saddened by the tone we are all taking 
when discussing our differences. So much hate 
and disdain for opposing views. 

Most of my brothers from my time in the US 
Navy are very conservative. I love them dearly 
and would lay down my life for them to this day. 
But when did hatred become the preferred emotion 
towards the left. 

My friends on the left. Fighting for equality 
should never be reduced to a shouting match 
of obscenities and hatred towards the right, just 
because they oppose what you stand for. 

My religious friends, every major religion 
preaches love and tolerance so my ques-tion is 
this... What in the hell are you doing? 

The terror attacks on 9-11 should have been the 
ultimate testimony of the path hate will take us. 
Unfortunately we are not learning the lesson. 

May God have Mercy on our Souls.

Sierra Madre Police and Fire Departments 
held their annual September 11th remembrance 
program to honor the 2,977 individuals 
who lost their lives.

A moment of silence was observed and all officers 
stood at attention as the Verdugo Emergency 
System commemorated the precise time 
when the last World Trade Center collasped.

 Verdugo Fire Communications Center is a 
regional emergency dispatch facility serving 
the cities of Burbank, Glendale, Pasadena, 
Alhambra, Arcadia, Monrovia, Montebello, 
Monterey Park, San Gabriel, San Marino, 
Sierra Madre, and South Pasadena.
