We Must Always Remember!


God Bless America!

John Vigiano Sr. is a retired New York City firefighter whose two sons followed him into service—John Jr. was a firefighter, too, and Joe was a police detective. On September 11, 2001, both Vigiano brothers responded to the call from the World Trade Center, and both were killed while saving others. Here, John Sr. remembers his sons and reflects on coping with his tremendous loss.

Sorry I tried and tried to put this on here the right way but for the life of me could not figure it out.

Sending my love to all of you

Oh, my. Tears in my eyes. What a powerful tribute by a father to his sons.

That was so well put together. I am glad this mad had the chance to tell his sons that he loved them. Such a sad but important day in our lives.

Maggie, thanks for sharing this heart warming tribute.. It gave me goose bumps as I listened to it. So many lives have been affected and altered because of this terrible senseless act.

Saying I love you to your love one is so important because you never know when it's the last time they will hear you say this... Thanks again. JB

Poignant and touching. I'm so glad they were able to say good-bye to each other in such a comforting way. My kids and I always end our conversations the same way.

Thanks.

Thank you. It's easy these days to get somewhat callous about tragedies, we see them every night on the news. And if you aren't' the family feeling the loss...it's even easier to move on past it. But 9/11 rocked the core of this country...and we all remember. What a great story this father had...and it brings it back home to any parent listening. Thanks for sharing the link.

Did you hear (former)President Bush's speech about Pres. Lincoln's letter to the mother in the Civil War who lost 5 sons? It was remarkably touching and it applies here. So sad to watch all the tributes today and one must never forget....

Hi Maggie, sorry I didn't get back to you sooner. I plainly forgot about your invitation. Thanks for your comment on my blog and for the invitation to your Blogazine. I accept but need a little time to get myself organized. Hugs & Love. JB

Thank you for posting this. I wrote an article in my blog reflecting how I feel 10 years after that horrible day.

Great site and a great post. Thanks for sharing.

It's so hard for us to realize the terrible things that happened to so many families. I just can't imagine him losing both of his sons. So tragic!

It's true, we must never forget what happened there. So many lives were lost in trying to save others.

PEA said...

I've just listened to the video and oh how very sad but yet what a blessing that the last thing he said to both his sons was "I love you". It goes to show we should never forget to say I love you to our loved ones when they leave because you never know what can happen afterwards. Thank you so much for sharing this with us, dear Maggie.

I've been a horrible blogger lately, hardly visiting anyone at all. Just been so busy with everything but I can finally see a light at the end of the tunnel:-)

Much love xoxo
