Cripes! If the firefighters are crying about this thirty years later, they'll be crying in their beer about 9/11 for the next three generations, easy.

Don't make fun of me, you whipper-snapper. I'm 70 years old, infirm, my weiner no longer functions as it ought to, and I'm hooked up to poop into a bag. This is not the way you should treat an American Hero. Why, I'm the Greatest American Hero. Also, My name is not Peter Buttlick, and for your information I'll have you know I have never licked a buttocks. Let me have my dignity. When I was a boy, mamby-pamby girlly boys were to be mocked, and I'm all man, despite my inability to prove it.

To make a statement like that is heartless for many its about keeping a memory alive not crying over it and means a lot to some. Remembering what these people gave and to hold a place for them in the lives of their wives, children, grandchildren and in the lives of all who knew them as well.
