    God Bless you Kevin

    Kevin; As I looked over this site I thanked God for you and your courage and that you are safe. I am sorry for everything all of you had to endure and go through. I am sorry for all those lost. God really must need you here for a purpose Brian He will use you to help someone else or give encouragement to others. I am writing a poem especially for you and will send it to you or Brian soon as I get it done. I thank God for your life and that he let you live that day. May God continue to bless you and our country. Love and Prayers Diane Huggins

    Thanks Diane.

    Post it on the site for all to see. That way it doesn't end up in our "have to post this up on the site when we get a chance " folder.

    Kevin,

    I've seen a lot of emotive photos from 9/11, but that one would have to be up there with the most moving. It just wasn't your time to go. Thank you so much for sharing your experiences and your memories with us. I can only imagine your grief at losing your brother firefighters, but your work here on this website will ensure that they will never be forgotten - and neither will you. God bless you.

    Go n'eiri an bothar leat,

    Emily

    The picture of Kevin

    I just joined this wonderful site after I saw the LIFE magazine. Kevin the picture that you have posted on this site, of you laying on the ground breaks my heart. I just sat at my desk at work in disbelief and tears in my eyes. To hear that numerous firefighters were lost is totally different when you actually see a picture of a courageous firefighter injured laying on the ground. Even a year later it still affects my heart badly. I've ALWAYS had a special place in my heart for firefighters since I was a little girl and when September 11 happened and many of my heroes were killed or injured, it hurt. Physically I hope you have recovered wonderfully, mentally.............I hope you stay strong.

    Lots of love and respect

    Time

    Hi Kevin

    I've been in touch with you a long time ago, but I just happened to visit this site again and noticed this forum here. A great improvement.

    About your photos. It's just so heartbreaking and I think there's no soul who can watch it without thinking how lucky you were.

    It's often said, when someone's been in a near-death-experience, that "it wasn't yet time to go" and looking at your photo and knowing what happened on that horrible day, those words came to my mind again. It really wasn't your time to go yet.

    God bless you!

    Thank you SO much

    Kevin,
    It is well after 9/11 now and I'm sure you have tried to move on with your life now. I know it's hard because my boyfriend is dealing with the same thing. He used to come by your station and hang out with all of your brothers. He was devasted to lose all of them just like you were. Thank you so much for being such a courageous person. You will be well-rewarded in heaven. God Bless you.

    You are one of the luckiest people i know. it is an absolute miracle that you survived. It has got to be hard to half lost brothers in the collapse. Being a fire fighter myself i know how hard it is when a fellow brother is either hurt dies or has a family tragedy.

    The Greatest Gift

    9-11 will remain the largest tragedy in the history of firefighting. The loss of life is unfathomable.

    The greatest gift given by the service is exemplified in yourself and others who survived. That you have not lost the spirit and drive to help those in danger, after knowing the pain of 9-11, is what sets fire fighters apart from all others.

    And those who follow that same path every day will continue to make our country strong and the world a better place.
