9/11: Salty And Roselle
Tumblr media
These two labs were remarkable dogs who helped their blind owners escape. Salty helped his owner Omar Rivera escape the 71st floor despite Omar’s attempts to get him to leave him. He even tried to get someone else to take him but Salty wasn’t having any of it! Salty made it clear they were in it together and made sure they got down safely.

Next but not least Roselle, Roselle remained calm and guided her owner Michael Hingson from the 78th floor. The further they went she also attracted 30 people helping them along the way. She would encounter woman panicking after being blinded by debris. This would have her pause as she would begin to lick the woman to try and soothe her. Roselle would successfully get them all out.

Both dogs would be awarded the Dickins medal among another awards.

Today, September 11, 2021, marks the 20th anniversary of the most devastating terrorist attack in the history of the United States. We shall never ever forget the nearly 3,000 souls lost on that dark day. Say their names and keep their families and loved ones in your thoughts and prayers.
"Today, our fellow citizens, our way of life, our very freedom came under attack in a series of deliberate and deadly terrorist acts. The victims were in airplanes or in their offices: secretaries, business men and women, military and federal workers, moms and dads, friends and neighbors. Thousands of lives were suddenly ended by evil, despicable acts of terror. The pictures of airplanes flying into buildings, fires burning, huge – huge structures collapsing have filled us with disbelief, terrible sadness, and a quiet, unyielding anger. These acts of mass murder were intended to frighten our nation into chaos and retreat. But they have failed. Our country is strong.”
- George W. Bush.

Window cleaners
I've spent the bulk of the day thinking about 9/11 and the state of the country and I'm ready to turn off the computer to focus on happier thoughts.
This shot is from my first trip to NYC, back in 1982. It's a scan of a Kodak Instamatic photo of 1 World Trade Center, shot from the 107th floor observation deck of the South Tower. At the time I didn't think there could be anything more terrifying than being at the top of that tower cleaning windows.
