How can mere word ever express the depth of both horror and pride Americans felt when watching these brave men rush headlong into the maw of destruction in order to save others? David Arce was a hero. I pray to God that each of us can find some way to live up to the example he set. He was not just New York's Bravest -- he was America's Bravest.
You will always be in my thoughts and prayers.

He was a brave man, he did what he had to trying to save innocent people, and I know now he is somewhere safe.

We will never forget, and you will never be forgotten for what you did that day. Thank you.

The day before Christmas, three months after the attack that took all our breaths away, and you away from your family. You are a stranger to me. I don't know you at all. But I am sorry for your loss. I am sorry that your family won't be with you tomorrow. I am still so affected by this although only a fraction of what your family is going through. I am sorry. I wish there was something I could do. God Bless You.
