  1. Today (9/11/2016) I attended a silent walk in Charleston, SC. All the firefighters in attendance walked in full gear a total of 5.91 miles across the Charleston Bridge. One time across and back again. I had the honor of carrying Peters name. It was a very humbling experience. Despite I, being only four at the time of the attacks. Today changed my life forever. Today was a very emotional almost six miles for me.

  8. Today on the 20th anniversary of 9/11 I participated in the stair climb at lambeau field in Wisconsin. I had the honor of carrying Peters name with me throughout the climb. Even though I was not born yet when the events of 9/11 happened it strongly moves me that my brothers and sisters in the fire service gave their lives in New York that day to save others. God bless all the fallen emergency personnel, their families and everyone that died in the towers, pentagon and 4 planes that day. I WILL NEVER FORGET

    Today in Bishop California our community climbed 110 flights of stairs in honor of the victims of 9/11. Every person climbed in honor of a fallen hero. I had the honor of climbing for Peter J. Langone. When I reached the top of the 110th a feeling came over me that I shouldn’t stop, so I just kept going. I want thank thank Peter and his family for their selfless sacrifices and for inspiring me to go the extra mile just like they did. Peter J. Langone you are not forgotten.

  12. I had the honor of wearing Peter’s name today during the 9-11 Red Rocks stair climb. Before starting the stair climb I looked Peter up and thought of him during my 9 laps. I thought about the fear and pain he and his family most have felt that day. I thought about where and when I was that day. Peter and his family will be in my thoughts today and every 9-11 going forward.
