from a friend in NY...:
correction to this report....I was listening to the radio today and they passed on a story about the mayor of NYC. aparently he was strolling down the street in a tuxedo. When asked why he was wearing that he replied, "I have been honored with a great distinction" Or something along those lines. He told a story of a woman about to get married, was not going to cancel her wedding. However, her father was one of the firefighters missing. She was upset because she had no one to walk her down the aisle. Mayor Giulliani said something along the lines of "It would honor me if I could walk you down the aisle. Just name the time and place and I will be there."
Where I heard this story I almost broke into tears. If my girlfriend wasn't there beside me already in tears, I probably would have.
the fireman was killed in the line of duty prior to last tuesday.
