Firefighters and other attendees participate in the 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb at Red Rocks Amphitheatre on Sunday.

Today’s high school freshmen weren’t yet born on Sept. 11, 2001. The youngsters climbed anyway.

Many who attended Sunday weren’t in New York, Washington or Pennsylvania on that horrific day, and don’t know anyone who was. And still they climbed.

Some participants weren’t firefighters and didn’t have any connection to first responders. And yet they climbed as well.
