Dog Heros of 9-11

The heroes of 9-11 were many.  They were not only first responders, people with amazing courage and compassion for fellow citizens, but the many dogs that worked tirelessly at Ground Zero.

A friend sent me this article written by

“Search and rescue dogs are some of the unsung heroes of 9/11… However, these determined animals were indispensable to the rescue efforts and saved countless lives. What’s more, they brought back a sliver of hope to a nation under attack and reeling from the horror. One Twitter user gave canines the attention they deserve in an incredibly profound and viral thread that once and for all proves that dogs really are our best friends”rescue dog of 9-11 Riley (2)

“Some of these heroic dogs were awarded The Dickin Medal which, according to BBC Radio 4, is the animal equivalent of the Victoria Cross. One of the dogs who received the medal was the aforementioned New York Police Department dog Appollo; the award was meant to recognize the dutiful efforts made by all SAR dogs during 9/11…

Two guide dogs were also awarded the medal for leading their owners more than 70 floors out of the World Trade Center immediately after the attacks in New York. Since 1943, over 60 animals have been awarded The Dickin Medal, including pigeons, horses and a cat (not just dogs). They were recognized for their services which led to people’s lives being saved during wartime.”

Where EVIL lurked…9-11 Revisited

 

9-11 towers burning (2)One never knows where evil lurks!  The terrorists of 9-11 most likely walked or rode bikes by our home in Venice, Florida. This was the beginning of their journey to murder as many people as possible and to die.

Venice is a peaceful, quiet place situated on the Gulf of Mexico in the U.S.A.  Families enjoy the beautiful beaches that are quiet and serene, especially as the sun begins to set in the West. Yet, evil was among them.

Venice Beach in Florida, USA

Late one evening, my husband and I walked down to take a look at the sunset.  A group of young people from Italy were there.  As we listened to them speak in Italian, we asked them if they were tourists.  They replied, “No, we are training at the Venice Airport.”   It was not uncommon to have people from around the world, who in good faith wanted to learn to fly in the U.S

Yet, no one would have dreamed that evil was lurking there behind the controls of the small aircraft. The pilot trainee was learning to fly in order to murder not only Americans, but thousands from different countries… even people from their own country, who were simply doing business here.  On leaving Venice, they planned to go on to other airports in Florida to learn to fly large aircraft.  Coming to the U.S. through Hamburg, Germany, they blended in and were like many other foreigners who had trained in Venice.

We were told that the employees at the airport were kind to the foreigners and even offered for two of them to stay in their home until they could find a place of their own during training.  Because they were so rude to the employee’s wife, they were asked to leave.

Venice Airport

A Christian friend of ours was a flight instructor at the Venice Airport.  Unfortunately, he had been given the assignment to train these men. After much frustration with them, he decided to complain to the airport managers. The men wanted to learn to fly, but oddly did not want to take instruction on landing.   Another instructor took over.  Neither the Venice Airport or local authorities in the area had been warned by federal agents about the men’s possible connection to the terrorist group Al Qaeda, led by Osama bin Laden.   Yet, here they were in the small town of Venice, ready and willing to learn, take their time and then strike like great, poisonous snakes for their Jihadist cause.

Do we remember their names?  No…a thousand times NO!  Their names are not worth remembering!

We do remember, however, the honorable, decent human beings who were the first responders, volunteers, and people from around the world who cared about humanity.
