It Wasn’t Only September 11

We all owe a debt of gratitude to the firemen, policemen and soldiers who contribute to our safety every day. On January 23, three New York firefighters died in the line of duty, the worst day since Sept. 11. I was struck by this photograph of Eileen Bellew, widow of ten-year veteran John G. Bellew, who died in the line of duty, battling a three-alarm fire in the Bronx. In the photo, Mrs. Bellew is placing her husband’s helmet on the head of the couple’s three year old son, Jack. No further explanation is necessary, I guess.
