On September 11th of 2001 two planes crashed into the World Trade Center, and on that day firefighters risked their lives to protect the workers, and for this their bravery is unmatched. This is because they charged into the buildings to save people knowing they might not come out.

Firefighters saved many, but not all peoples' lives on 9-11. We lost a total of 343 firefighters in 9-11. They risked their lives to protect us, and we should never forget this. I think they are heroes because when they saw anyone who needed help getting out of the towers, they helped them and doing this saved many lives.
