Like many of you, last week on British TV I watched and was deeply moved by "The Firefighter's Story".
I was particularly touched by Tommy Foley's story and the words of his siblings, Danny and Joanne. It underlined again for me the utter callousness of those zealots who could, without compassion or concern, fly planes into buildings, destroying thousands of lives in one foul sroke.
Tommy stands greater than the cowards who robbed him of his life ever will.
The only comfort, it seems to me is when you look at this handsome, vibrant, young man, you must remember the words of our great English poet, Lawrence Binyon: "They shall grow not old as we that are left grow old; age shall not weary them nor the years condemn; at the going down of the sun and in the morning we will remember them."
Rest in peace young man.
