Last weekend Steve and I traveled to Indiannapolis to attend the Fire Department Instructors Convention. This beautiful truck was one of the many thousands of trucks we saw. The stadium (the same one that hosted the Super Bowl this year) was jammed packed with all kinds of fire fighting equipment as was the huge conference center attached to the stadium.
During the conference a Memory Stair Climb was held in memory of the fire fighters who lost their lives their lives in New York City on 9/11. The climb consisted of 110 flights of stairs (3 trips through the stadium). Almost 200 people participated in the climb including my husband. The climb started with a beautiful opening ceremony, prayer and a bag pipe band playing Amazing Grace.
