  1. I have no memory of hero Robert Lane; however, I am organizing a walk on 9/11 of this year. Robert Lane is the hero I am walking for. I have organized 343 people to walk for the fallen heroes of fire departments. I hope my walk is successful and becomes a tradition; these lives should never be forgotten. Thank you
