Zanjeer, the bomb dog, is laid to rest after saving thousands of lives - 2000
"Sila Calderon was sworn in … as Puerto Rico's first woman governor, promising to seek greater autonomy for the U.S. territory and to halt Navy exercises on the outlying island of Vieques.A crowd of thousands broke into wild applause and chants … as she took the oath of office on the steps of the island's Capitol overlooking the Atlantic.
A cannon blasted from the nearby Spanish colonial fort of San Cristobal, and doves flew into an azure sky."The people of Puerto Rico want an immediate halt to the naval exercises," Calderon said to applause in her inaugural address. "Sixty years of a menace to the health and security of our countrymen is unacceptable for any civilized and peaceful society." (James, Napa Valley Register)

"The pictures of airplanes flying into buildings, fires burning, huge structures collapsing have filled us with disbelief, terrible sadness, and a quiet, unyielding anger. These acts of mass murder were intended to frighten our Nation into chaos and retreat, but they have failed. Our country is strong.
A great people has been moved to defend a great nation. Terrorist attacks can shake the foundations of our biggest buildings, but they cannot touch the foundation of America. These acts shattered steel, but they cannot dent the steel of American resolve. America was targeted for attack because we're the brightest beacon for freedom and opportunity in the world. And no one will keep that light from shining."

"He never made me feel guilty for being in the situation I was in," said Berthia, now 30 and a married father of two, recalled of the conversation with Briggs on the bridge. "He made me feel like, 'I understand why you are here, but there are alternatives.'
"That an individual who doesn't even know me could listen to me and hear my story and show me compassion gave me another reason maybe to try again," Berthia said.
More than 1,500 people have killed themselves by jumping off the Golden Gate, making the bridge that opened in 1937 one of the world's most-active suicide spots. A less-known statistic is the much larger number of people who have been talked out of taking their lives by the CHP, U.S. Park Police and bridge security officers.
...Kevin Berthia [was] talked out of jumping off the Golden Gate Bridge by California Highway Patrolman Kevin Briggs, center, in San Francisco. Briggs will be accepting an award in New York Wednesday on behalf of the patrol for its work in suicide prevention.
Last year, there were 33 confirmed and three unconfirmed suicides from the famous span. But the bridge district recorded 86 successful interventions. So it is not uncommon for veteran officers to have persuaded hundreds of people to accept offers of help."
