9/11 A day of heroes

 The word hero has acquired new definition after the 9/11 attacks
a bit broader and perhaps more inclusive but still a badge of honor
which is always bestowed in gratitude on the deserving recipient. 

The first responders and civilians who put themselves in harms way 
to affect rescue attempts were first class heroes on that awful day.  
None emerged unscathed many injured beyond repair and others died.

Like so many of the victims they tried in vain to rescue, 
they too became victims, but few victims became heroes.

Victim or hero all were just people going about their business
 having the worst day of their lives.
