  6. Hi, I’m Morgan. A 7th grader at BayView Middle school and today I climbed 78 flights of stairs for Daniel. It was an honor to wear his name, and whenever I got tired and wanted to quit I just looked down at my sheet of paper with Daniels name and picture on it, and remembered who I was doing it for. After a lot of hard work I completed the climb for Daniel. It was exhausting work but I completed it feeling a sense of pride and joy for Daniel. Thank you for you’re service and hard work. I would also like to send prayers to Daniels family and make sure that everyone knows how incredibly heroic Daniel and so many others that lost there lives trying to help people on 9/11 are. Thank you. -Never Forget-
