  22. I’ve done the 9/11 stair climb twice in my life. Once 5 years ago and yesterday, 9/11/2021. I feel like it’s a little fate or maybe Shawn just saying hi, one veteran to another. Maybe he was there just pushing me to do my best because that climb is insane. I say that because I got his remembrance card at both climbs. If his family sees this…I’m so sorry for your loss.

    – Nicole Clark

I climbed in honor of Shawn Edward Powell Firefighter Engine 207. Thank you Shawn for the ultimate sacrifice I hope I can be half the man and firefighter you were. I pray for your and all other families that lost a loved one on 9/11.

  25. I took part in a memorial at Red Rocks In CO years back. They gave each participant a badge with one of the fallen’s name and picture on it. I received Shawn’s. I attached that badge to my hiking backpack and taken him on every big hike I’ve been on since. I like to think in a way he’s made it to the top of mountains with me, and it’s my way of never forgetting.
