Today, after a 72 hour shift at the fire station, a woman ran up to me at the grocery store and gave me a hug. When I tensed up, she realized I didn’t recognize her. She let go with tears of joy in her eyes and the most sincere smile and said, “On 9-11-2001, you carried me out of the World Trade Center.” MMT

Goosebumps! It's gonna MMT for a while.

^Always got to have the hater. When I read this, I broke down in tears. Like many others, I signed up just to comment on this. Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful MMT. Really does make you think about all of the things we take for granted.

@28; But isn't that the main idea of this website? To share our experiences to the internet? Maybe their goal is to have their posts be popular, maybe it isn't. What if some one said "So, the jist of this comment is 'I am a hater. Everyone please hate me, because I am so insecure that I need strangers on the internet to be hating me.' A sensible human would not have to be a troll" Try to be respectful of others.

oh my! that was moving. im from the philippines but i know about that 9/11 attack.. thank god for the soldiers! god bless you more and more.

Once again, I join the ranks of people who joined to comment. You are a hero, sir. Thank you for everything you've ever done for us.

It touch my heart Lalpan malsawm che rawh se..

This is awe inspiring.

I probably would have tensed up too if someone I didn't recognize came up and hugged me, but I'm willing to bet that it is comments like that that remind you why you do what you do.
