      My thoughts with all the victims of the World Trade Center tragedy and every one directly affected by it. Hard to believe it's been 11 years already.

      This is also a date I like to think of Salvador Allende, the then democratically elected Chilean president,  killed in this date in 1973. It was the beginning of a Military Dictatorship led by Pinochet that would kill thousands, torture even more, and cease the freedom of millions.

      Rest in peace to all those killed and thoughts are with their families and friends today. We saw the worst of humanity on that day, but also the best of humanity.

      In the aftermath of what happened it really gave me hope in how, much of the world came together and showed support of those involved. It was touching to see folks in other countries with sentimental tributes and messages in support of our country. I know the US doesn't do much right in the eyes of the rest of the world, so it was nice to see that folks could put that aside to show respect and compassion. It's unfortunate that it took an act of evil to bring out those emotions. For those personally affected my prayers go out to you and I hope you can find peace and forgiveness in your hearts. I have visited the memorial at the Pentagon and it is deeply saddening. I will always remember walking into work that morning in Richmond, Virginia and thinking to myself that the sky was the most amazing shade of blue that day...........

      RIP to all who died on that day, to all the first responders who have died as a result of their bravery on the days after and to the millions of innocent people who have died in the resulting 9/11 wars.
      I hope the 9/11 families one day have their questions answered.

      Read this the other day with it being 16th anniversary of 9/11.

      On 9/11, people remember their favourite story about Steve Buscemi

      Hollywood actor know for playing oddballs and gangsters originally trained as a firefighter

      Sixteen years ago, on 11 September 2001, Hollywood actor Steve Buscemi - know for his depictions of gangsters and weirdos, once described by the Guardian as a "strangely attractive shoelace" - returned to his job as a New York firefighter.

      He worked 12 hour shifts for several days alongside other firefighters, searching for survivors in the rubble from the World Trade Center.

      Buscemi had taken the FDNY civil service test when he was 18, and used to work as a FDNY firefighter in downtown Manhattan in the 1980's.

      He later left the service to become an actor, but has remained engaged in New York firefighters causes, having spoken at union rallies and hosted the HBO documentary A Good Job: Stories of the FDNY

      At the time, he said of his efforts during the rescue: "It was a privilege to be able to do it. It was great to connect with the firehouse I used to work with and with some of the guys I worked alongside. And it was enormously helpful for me because while I was working, I didn't really think about it as much, feel it as much."

      In 2013, the Brotherhood of Fire Facebook page reminded people of his selfless act of courage, writing beneath a picture of Buscemi.

      "Do you recognise this man? Do you know his name? Lots of people know he's an actor, and that his name is Steve Buscemi. What very few people realise is that he was once one of New York's Bravest.

      "In 1976 Steve Buscemi took the FDNY civil service test when he was just 18 years old. In 1980 Steve Buscemi became a New York City Firefighters. For four years, Buscemi served on one of FDNY's busiest, Engine Co. 55 in Manhattan's Little Italy. He later left the fire service to become a successful actor, writer and director.

      "After 9/11/2001... Brother Buscemi returned to FDNY Engine 55.

      "On September 12, 2001 and for several days following Brother Steve worked 12-hour shifts alongside other firefighters digging and sifting through the rubble from the World Trade Center looking for survivors.

      "Very few photographs and no interviews exist because he declined them. He wasn't there for the publicity."

      Buscemi also been an advocate for firefighters' welfare, telling CBS News: "Firefighters are great at helping others, they're great at helping each other. But they're not always—they don't always know that they, themselves, are in need.

      "Their first reaction would be: ‘Oh, the next guy has it worse, you know?'"

      During the 11 September attacks 343 firefighters gave their lives protecting and rescuing others.

      Buscemi still serves on the Board of Advisors for Friends of Firefighters, an organisation dedicated to New York firefighters and their relatives.

      I remember on 9/11 there was a haunting video showing a group of firefighters who just escaped tower 1 and they were sitting on a wall, covered with soot, ash and dirt with oxygen masks on trying to get fresh air...after a short rest they got up and started walking towards the 2nd tower to try and get people out and they had to know they were going to die and they still went. And they all died!

      NYs Bravest is not just a nickname.
