Fire chief speaks to Rotary

DULUTH -- The Rotary Club of Gwinnett County welcomed a special guest Tuesday during its weekly meeting in Duluth.

Gwinnett County Fire Chief Bill Myers spoke to a packed room in the 1818 Club on the topic of remembering Sept. 11, 2001.

Myers quoted from President George W. Bush's speech that followed the tragic events 11 years ago. He told members of the Rotary Club that they should aim to earn their freedom on a daily basis.

"America was targeted for attack because we're the brightest beacon for freedom and opportunity in the world," Myers said, paraphrasing the speech. "No one will keep that light from shining."

The Rotary Club of Gwinnett County meets every Tuesday from 12:15 to 1:15 p.m. at the 1818 Club in Duluth.

According to its website, Rotary is a worldwide organization of business and professional leaders that provides humanitarian service and encourages high ethical standards in all vocations. Rotary Club membership is by invitation only.

Exactly what do you hope to prove with your useless statement? Does someone have to serve in the military to show they are patriotic and love our country? September 11th has a very special meaning to members of the fire service.
