In the aftermath of the attacks on the World Trade Center Towers of 11 September, 2001, a total of 91 various service vehicles and apparatus were destroyed. This is what remains of Ladder 3, a Tower Ladder for the New York City Fire Department. This image shows the Engine on display in the lower level of the 911 Museum. It appears that the tower apparatus was melted from the heat of the fire but I can not confirm that. The list below describes all of the apparatus that was destroyed.

7 rear mount ladders
4 tiller trucks
4 tower ladders
2 heavy rescue units

** Staples Singers - "Respect Yourself"

- " We do not move forward from a middle opinion, which is undemocratic but mediocratic.
We advance from a creative passion "- (Edgar Morin)

- "To photograph is to hold one's breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It's at
that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy."
- Henri Cartier-Bresson.

::Words from Denny:
- My beliefs, and values, have always been strongly tied-to music, especially Jazz, and Blues.
- The following artists and lyrics seem to "sum-up" where my spirit resides:
EARTH WIND AND FIRE;
"HOLD ON TO YOUR SPIRIT,
ALWAYS FEEL YOUR SOUL....
HONOR THE MAGIC IN YOUR HEART"
