Freedom walkers fill the street on the final block as they enter North Memorial Park in Kasson on Tuesday, September 11, 2012.

By Melanie Dobson

"It's ordinary people doing extraordinary things," Joe Fitch, Kasson fire chief said. That was a common theme at the program held on Tuesday evening at Kasson Veterans Memorial Park. Both he and retired Staff Sergeant Chris Bengston spoke of more people stepping up and volunteering to serve after 911. Mary Mollert spoke of "regular people" working together to help, "In nine hours, boats streaming in from all over the Northeast evacuated 500,000 people trapped on Manhattan," she said.

Regular, ordinary people like you and me, striving sometimes risking our lives to help those in need.

The Freedom Walk is a day to remember the lives lost at 911 and to honor our heroes- fire fighters, law enforcement, emergency medical personnel and veterans. It was also a reminder that the hero that is called upon may be a regular, ordinary person like you and me challenged to do extraordinary things.
