I would like to dedicate this blog to the Fire Department of New York. Most everyone remembers their heroism on 9-11, but I think there's more to this story. This fire department, like all those in the nation, grew from the spirit of community service and volunteering to help neighbors in time of need. The FDNY was there in New York in 1863 to keep the city from being burned down due to the Civil War Draft Riots. The department was there again in 1911 trying heroically to save over 126 young women being burned alive in the sweat shop that was the Triangle Shirt Waist Factory. There are stories like this all over the country where local volunteers come together to support one another in times of tragedy whether man made or an "act of God." On this Patriot Weekend, I salute the FDNY and this song's for you  Peace on Earth
