11. We had those government workers here, Malaise,

In Boston. We thank our lucky stars, just as Oklahoma, we are all happy for their first response.

Just like the civilian response, putting themselves in harms way so selflessly, to aid the fallen.

to them all!

16. After WTC collapse, firefighters used to hide in the rubble so search dogs wouldn't get depressed

A couple days after the WTC collapse, the search dogs were only finding bodies. They had been trained to mainly find survivors and were getting depressed. As a result, some of the firefighters started to hide in the rubble so that the search dogs could find them and feel that they were doing some good.

18. i always though the first responders here were the teachers that used their bodies

 

to save their students' lives.

i keep forgetting. we teachers are nation's whipping boys for all social ills. when we do something good, the first responders get all the press.

teachers are a dime a dozen. and i makes teachers like me sick to my stomach
