In memoriam, Christopher Santora

I recently came across this website, dedicated to the memory of a Firefighter who died on September 11, 2001 http://christophersantora.com/. His family have posted the following information, which I want to share with my Readers:

Our Reason for Being…

In Memory of Christopher, with Love

Following in the foot steps of his Firefighter father, Christopher Santora was a member of Engine 54/Lad­der 4 for only 2 months before he lost his life tragical­ly on 9/11. Before he signed up for the FDNY Fire Academy, he’d already followed in the foot steps of his mother as a teacher in the NYC Public School system. No grass grew under his feet, as they say. Christopher had a certain, special “something.”
In memory and celebration of Christopher and the special person he was, the Firefighter Christopher Santora Educational Scholarship Fund is dedicated to the continuing education of young American students from all walks of life who have some thing special about them as well.
I also want to share the website for the NY City Firefighters Museum http://www.nycfiremuseum.org/
and the Fire Department of New York's own 9/11 Tribute page http://www.nyc.gov/html/fdny/media/tribute/tribute.html.

Today, and every day, let us honor their memory.
