Kansas City 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb

On Sunday I participated as a volunteer EMT for the Kansas City Memorial 9/11 stair climb.  It was an awesome, very rewarding experience.  Just the opening ceremony alone was enough to bring a person to tears, especially when the bagpipers started playing Amazing Grace.

343 firefighters from 68 departments and 7 states participated in the climb of 110 flights of stairs.

Yesterday and today, we have skipped some of our regular homeschooling to watch the numerous TV programs of 9-11.  My girls remember when this happened.  We will NOT forget.
