Met with Denton police officer, Lt. Tom Woods, for a project I’m working on, and at some point during the interview I randomly asked if there were any stories behind the photos he had on display in his office.
This photo is of his cousin. New York firefighter Gerade Schrang.
He was one of the first responders who died on Sept. 11. 2001 when one of the towers collapsed. The towers hit a lot closer to home than I once thought more than 10 years ago when I was in middle school.
