First responders are the ‘real’ heroes

By Hal Rochkind Nov 12, 2015

On Sept. 11, 2001, we all watched in horror as the first responders of metropolitan New York ran toward what they must have known was certain death. These men and women in blue attempted to free those trapped in the burning World Trade Center towers. We honored those who lived and those who died with testimonials, donations and parades — and we all wore NYPD and FDNY T-shirts and hats. Today, 14 years later, those first responders are now targets of disrespect and scorn.

In New York City, two young officers sitting in their squad car were the target of assassination. On Aug. 28, Harris County Sheriff’s Deputy Darren Goforth, 47, was killed while pumping gas.
