A memorial service today for the first responders who lost their lives on September 11th, 2001. The service featured representatives from the Detroit Fire Department and the Detroit Police Department. On a day when all government and military personnel failed to protect our country, it was ordinary citizens who became our soldiers.
Campus Martius, an appropriate setting, is Latin for “Field of War”.
