NYC Stories

Connor Geraghty Petition

I lost my Dad on September 11th; he was Chief Edward Geraghty, Battalion 9, New York City Fire Department. He lost his life with many other heroes that day, victims of the terrorists.

Firefighters from all over have come to the aid and rescue of the tragedy in New York and Washington, D.C. Many firefighters have lost their lives to save someone else’s; the truth of the matter is, they do this every single day. They truly are heroes. I know many people feel helpless, especially those who live far from NYC and D.C.

We all want to do something, show our appreciation, our support. I think we can…

In honor of the bravery, courage and determination of American firefighters, there should be a day in our nation to celebrate and appreciate their handwork and never-ending passion for saving lives.

I think we should honor all those other heroes who still live today . . .

I’m starting a petition for a National Firefighters Day. Will you help make every September 11th National Firefighters Day? Please join me!

Thank you.

Connor Geraghty, age 14

Rockville Centre, New York (I Love u, DAD!!)
