    Fire Fighter Remembers


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     MikeJohn13 was at the 9-11 firefighters memorial wall this morning -- directly across from the World Trade Center site -- when he spotted this firefighter. He had come to pay his respects to one of the victims from his home town of El Paso, Texas (Gilbert Granados). 'I had heard him begin to call to attention and salute the memorial. I quickly pulled out my phone to catch the moment of him at attention. All I could think was how powerful it was to see him standing there by himself, silent, the sound of names still being read behind me and saluting those who he had lost, the memorial engraved with the image of the burning buildings right in front of him.'
    - dsashin, CNN iReport producer
