Today We Remember FF George Cain
Today we remember FF George Cain, 35, Ladder 7 FDNY.
George Cain made his living fighting fires but spent much of his time on cold snowy mountains, skiing. He loved the mogul runs and skied like the wind. He worked for five years in Telluride, CO as a carpenter before he got the call to join the New York Fire Department in 1994.
The World Trade Center alarm came minutes before he was to complete his shift with Ladder Co. 7 of Manhattan's Battalion 8.
George's mother found a hand-written note tucked in his personal papers that he had written to himself. It was on a torn piece of envelope and said,
"I'm less worried about dying than I am about not living."
