Found September 11, 2012 on NY Rangers Blog:
Eleven years ago today, our world as we know it changed forever. Our freedom, our very way of life was attacked, and the outcome was the pointless loss of nearly 3,000 lives. One thing humans have the potential to do greatly is not only persevere through adversity, but come together with their fellow man.Today, both Brad Richards and Steve Eminger took a tour of New Yor City, stopping at Engine 24/ Ladder 5/ Battalion 2 on 6th ave, who lost 11 brave men on that fateful day. Thanks Engine 24 and Ladder 5 for a great visit. #FDNY twitter.com/BRichards_1991… — Brad Richards (@BRichards_1991) September 11, 2012 Both players also visited the 1st Precinct as well. Class act by both players taking a tour of one of the harder hit firehouses on 9/11. Can't say enough positive things about what the Rangers do for their community.  Give a follow on Twitter @TheWrage or Facebook. E-mail me with any questions or comments at jwrabel9@hotmail.com.
