The bronze statue, the firefighter monument, erected in June 2001 outside the Central Train Station for the fallen firefighters of Glasgow, took on a new meaning after the September 11th attacks on the United States. In October of 2001, two hundred fireman paid tribute to their fallen comrades from the loss of the twin towers in New York City; and ever since it receives some attention.
On my travels to Scotland, I took many photos of Glasgow, but with this one, the light rain was not the only water I wiped from my face. Walking by the monument last September I again noticed the 9/11 anniversary was not lost on Glasgow, even after eleven years (look here for a closer view).
Thank you Scotland, and thank you Glasgow, for having your tribute to 9/11 too. I certainly appreciate it and I know many others do as well.
Stay remembering and rebuilding, Craig
