September 11, 2001 is a day that changed history. On this day of remembrance I would like to pay tribute to all the ordinary people that showed incredible acts of heroism.

I would also like to pay tribute to the heroic rescue dogs. Bo’s pal, Odie, brought to my attention a great article which features a picture gallery of these dogs.

“If these dogs only knew what a difference they make. Certainly, there’s nothing that can replace the precision of a dog’s nose-and absolutely nothing that can replace a dog’s heart.”
– Bob Sessions, rescue worker, Federal Emergency Management Agency

A special thanks to Odie who took the time to put together an amazing tribute page with numerous links to 9/11 memorials and articles. It’s worth visiting: take a few moments from your busy schedule to reflect and honor the memory of those affected that day.
