THE STORY:

I'M A CHICAGO POLICE OFFICER AND A BAGPIPER WITH THE BAGPIPES AND DRUMS OF THE EMERALD SOCIETY-CHICAGO P.D.  I'M TRAVELING TO DALLAS, TX FOR THIS EVENT WHICH IS IN MEMORY OF THE FALLEN POLICE, FIRE AND EMS AT THE WORLD TRADE CENTER.  70 LAW ENFORCEMENT AND 343 FIREFIGHTERS WILL CLIMB THE RENAISSANCE TOWER (55 STORIES 2 TIMES) IN FULL GEAR. 

I'VE CLIMBED THE SEARS TOWER 103, JOHN HANCOCK 94, AON BLDG 80, US BANK IN LA 75 AND HBSN BUFFALO NY 40 WITH MY SON WHO'S NOW 9.  I'VE ALWAYS WANTED TO PARTICIPATE IN A 9/11 CLIMB.  DALLAS IS THE FIRST ONE THAT I FOUND THAT ALLOWS POLICE TO PARTICIPATE ALONG WITH FIREFIGHTERS. 

I TRAVELED TO NY TO SEE THE DEVASTATION IN NYC IN FEB OF 2002 WITH A FRIEND WHO WAS A PORT AUTHORITY POLICE OFFICER.  EVEN THOUGH 5 MONTHS HAD PASSED, IT WAS UNIMAGINABLE WHAT THE FIRST RESPONDERS DEALT WITH ON THAT DAY.   I BROUGHT MY FAMILY TO GROUND ZERO AND ST. PAUL'S CHAPEL IN JULY OF 2011.  MY THEN 7 YR OLD LOOKED AT US IN DISBELIEF WHEN HE SAW PHOTOS AND HEARD EXPLANATIONS OF WHAT HAPPENED THERE ALMOST 10 YRS EARLIER.

PLEASE CONSIDER A SMALL DONATION IN SUPPORT OF MY CLIMB.  ALL MONIES GO TO POLICE AND FIRE CHARITIES.
