“True heroism is remarkably sober, very undramatic. It is not the urge to surpass all others at whatever cost, but the urge to serve others at whatever cost.”
- Arthur Ashe

On the subject of heroes... FDNY Captain Patrick Brown is mine.

His last reported position on September 11th was in the north tower of the World Trade Center, still heading up with his company. There's no denying that kind of sacrifice, but to me it's the way he lived before that day that makes him a hero.

There's no way I could do even a few of the stories justice. So here are some ways to find out what I'm alluding to...

1. Read Sharon's book 'Miss You, Pat' (or ask to borrow my copy).

2. Check out The Captain Patrick J. Brown Memorial Foundation.

Better yet, just listen to the man.

God Bless you Paddy!

WOD: Rest day.
