This is an e-mail based petition that asks you to forward it
on to everyone you know . It first appeared in October 2001.
There are also many other people that deserve thanks and
recognition for their work during and after the atrocities that occurred in
September 2001. So are we going to have a Major of New York day, a Police Day,
a Paramedics day?
Subject: Fw: Petition
Friends, I hardly ever forward petitions unless they seem to be quite
worthwhile. This one strikes me as worthy of the effort. You decide, and sign
if you feel the same way. Thanks. -
The following is an effort by the 14 year old son
of a firefighter, lost on Sept. 11th. He is petitioning to make Sept. 11th a
National Day of Honor for Firefighters.... It seems like such a small thing to
do for this young boy. Please type your name at the bottom list and pass on to
your email addresses...asking them to join this admirable expression of love
by a son. Please read: "I lost my Dad on September 11th; he was Chief
Edward Geraghty, Battalion 9, New York City Fire Department. He lost his life
with many other heroes that day, victims of the terrorists.
Firefighters from all over have come to the aid and rescue of the tragedy in
New York and Washington, DC Many firefighters have lost their lives to save
someone else's; the truth of the matter is, they do this every single day.
They truly are heroes. I know many people feel helpless, especially those who
live far from NYC and DC? We all want to do something, show our appreciation,
our support. I think we can... In honor of the bravery, courage and
determination of American firefighters, there should be a day in our nation to
celebrate and appreciate their hard-work and never-ending passion for saving
lives. I think we should honor all those other heroes who still live today.
I'm starting a petition for a National Firefighters Day. Will you help make
every September 11th "National Firefighters Day"?
Please join me!" Thank you. Connor Geraghty, age 14 Rockville Center, New
York (I Love u, DAD!!)

If you receive a message about this then please ignore it and don't pass it on as this only serves to propagate
If you really want to do some good, then send a letter to your local politician
or statesman stating your feelings, that will mean more than a silly electronic
petition that just has your name on.
