from my sister in Manhattan:
Doreen, this girl I work with, her boyfriend is an ironworker too and he's been at the WTC site helping to cut alot of the metal. Doreen's sister is a 4th grade teacher and she had all of her students write thank-you notes to the police and firemen.
Then she said, "my sister's boyfriend's an ironworker. Let's thank them too for helping out at the site". And one of the kids yelled, "Yeah, and thank them for ironing our clothes!"
