Our passion and commitment to true HEROES inspired our 2nd 9/11 tribute. This one's to show our love, respect and gratitude for those who sacrificed ALL and those still fighting their battles so that others may live.
9/11 hits very home for us. Personally joining the NYPD just before 9/11 and spending time at ground zero we knew it would be bad. We coughed out strange particles from our irritated lungs. We blew our noses to into tissues that turned black. We joked at the paper masks they gave us.
“ We were told the air was safe down there and it wasn’t, But you know what, that doesn’t matter. Because we would have went in anyway. Because that’s what we do. It’s not a job for us. It’s a calling.” -NYPD Det. Luis Alvares
241 NYPD deaths are directly related to 9/11 illness.
We hope the art created for this shirt and the passion we put into it reflects how grateful we ALL are for those who gave everything, their families and also for those still fighting each day for their health. WE HONOR THEM with vigilance and eternal memory.
