9/11

On September 11, 2001 police responded to the World Trade Center and went inside to try and help those inside the building. The building started to collapse and they were ordered to evacuate. Officers ran for their lives out of the building as is collapsed. Many of them were killed or seriously injured as that first tower collapsed.

As soon as the tower settled, the same police who moments before ran for their lives, turned around and ran back to the rubble to search for survivors and back to the second tower to help evacuate it. They ran back inside a tower they now knew could collapse.

They ran into those towers, because that is what we do. That is who we are. Good cops go towards the danger when everyone else is running away. Not because we are so manly, brave or macho. It is because it is who we are, and we could not live with ourselves if we did not do anything else; that's what the SGT Says.

The sheep dog looks like a wolf and protects the sheep.
