They started off by saying the Pledge of Allegiance.Ten minutes later,they were reading the text of a resolution claiming the existence of"overwhelming evidence"that"pre-planted explosives...caused the destruction of the three World Trade Center buildings."

他们一开始说的是效忠宣誓。十分钟后,他们正在阅读一份决议文本,该文本声称存在"压倒性的证据",证明"预先埋设的爆炸物......导致了世贸中心三座建筑物的毁灭"

And so it was,on July 24,2019—nearly 18 years after the horrific attacks that traumatized a nation and changed the world forever—the Franklin Square and Munson Fire District,which oversees a volunteer fire department serving a hamlet of 30,000 residents just outside of Queens,New York,became the first legislative body in the country to officially support a new investigation into the events of 9/11.

2019724日,富兰克林广场(Franklin Square)和曼森消防区(Munson Fire District)成为美国第一个正式支持对911事件展开新一轮调查的立法机构。那场可怕的袭击震惊了整个国家,并永远改变了世界,将近18年后的今天,富兰克林广场和曼森消防区管理着一个志愿消防部门,为纽约皇后区外一个有3万居民的小村庄服务。

The resolution,drafted and introduced by Commissioner Christopher Gioia,was unanimously approved by the five commissioners.Members of the audience—including the families of fallen firefighters Thomas J.Hetzel and Robert Evans,both Franklin Square natives—joined in solemn but celebratory applause after the fifth"ay"was spoken.

这项决议由委员克里斯托弗·焦亚起草并提出,得到了五位委员的一致通过。第五声"ay"发出后,听众们——包括富兰克林广场(Franklin Square)当地居民托马斯·j·赫泽尔(Thomas j.Hetzel)和罗伯特·埃文斯(Robert Evans)的家属——一起报以庄严而庆祝的掌声。

Conversing with guests after the meeting,Commissioner Dennis Lyons remarked on the enormous and lasting toll that 9/11 has taken on the Franklin Square community.

警务处处长莱昂斯在会后与嘉宾交谈时表示,911事件对富兰克林广场社区造成了巨大而持久的影响。

"We have a memorial—a piece of steel from the World Trade Center with 28 holes where the nuts and bolts used to go,"Lyons explained."Every year on the 11th,we put a rose in each hole for the 24 Nassau County firefighters and four Franklin Square residents who died on 9/11."

里昂解释说:"我们有一个纪念碑ーー一块来自世贸中心(World Trade Center)的钢铁,上面有28个孔,以前螺母和螺栓都是放在那里的。""每年的11号,我们都会在每个洞里放一朵玫瑰,以纪念9/11事件中死去的24名拿骚县消防队员和4名富兰克林广场居民。""我们有一个纪念碑ーー一块世贸中心的钢板,上面有28个孔,以前那些螺母和螺栓都是放在那里的。每年的11号,我们都会在每个洞里放一朵玫瑰,纪念9/11事件中死去的24名拿骚县消防队员和4名富兰克林广场居民。"ー委员 Dennis Lyons

The impact of 9/11 on the community extends well beyond the victims and their grieving families.On September 12,2001,the Franklin Square Fire Department was called in to assist with the massive rescue and recovery effort that was just getting underway.Countless members of the department,including Gioia and Commissioner Philip Malloy(then rank-and-file firefighters),spent weeks on the pile searching in vain for civilians and fellow responders who might still be alive.Today,Malloy is one of thousands suffering chronic health effects.

9/11事件对社区的影响远远超出了受害者和他们悲痛的家人。2001912日,富兰克林广场消防局被召集来协助正在进行的大规模救援和恢复工作。包括乔亚和菲利普·马洛伊委员(当时还是普通消防员)在内的无数消防队员花了几个星期的时间在废墟中寻找可能还活着的平民和应急人员。今天,马洛伊是成千上万遭受慢性健康影响的人之一。

The department also lost one of its own in Thomas J.Hetzel,affectionately referred to as"Tommy"by the commissioners.Hetzel was a full-time member of the New York Fire Department in addition to serving as a volunteer firefighter in Franklin Square.A touching memorial to Hetzel was on display during the meeting,and Hetzel's widow,parents,and sister were all in attendance.

该部门也失去了一个自己的托马斯·j·黑泽尔(thomasj.Hetzel),委员们亲切地称他为"汤米"。赫泽尔除了在富兰克林广场担任志愿消防员外,还是纽约消防局的全职员工。会议期间展出了对黑泽尔令人感动的纪念品,黑泽尔的遗孀、父母和姐姐都出席了会议。

"The Hetzel and Evans families were very appreciative of the proceedings,"Gioia commented the day after the meeting."They know it's an uphill struggle.But at least they have hope,which is something they haven't had in a long time."

"赫泽尔和埃文斯的家人非常感谢会议的进行,"乔亚在会后的第二天评论道。"他们知道这是一场艰苦的斗争。但至少他们还有希望,这是他们很长时间以来从未有过的。"

Besides the commissioners'desire to see justice done for their fallen brothers and deceased neighbors,the driving force behind the resolution was a petition filed last year with United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York Geoffrey S.Berman by the Lawyers'Committee for 9/11 Inquiry,outlining the evidence of the World Trade Center's explosive demolition on 9/11.

除了委员们希望看到为他们死去的兄弟和已故的邻居伸张正义之外,该决议背后的推动力是律师委员会(Lawyers'Committee)去年向纽约南区联邦检察官杰弗里·s·伯曼(Geoffrey s.Berman)提交的一份请愿书,其中概述了9/11事件中世界贸易中心(World Trade Center)被炸毁的证据。

The U.S.Attorney's Office notified the Lawyers'Committee in November that it would indeed comply with the federal statute requiring the U.S.Attorney to present the petition to a special grand jury.The news set off a wave of hope,among those paying attention,that the wheels of justice were finally beginning to move in the right direction.

美国检察官办公室在11月通知律师委员会,它将确实遵守联邦法规,要求美国检察官向一个特别大陪审团提交请愿书。这一消息在那些关注此事的人中间引发了一股希望的浪潮:正义之轮终于开始朝着正确的方向前进。

Adding a surge to that wave of hope,the Franklin Square resolution declares the fire district's full backing of the(presumably)ongoing grand jury investigation in Lower Manhattan,while also proclaiming the district's support for"any and all efforts by other government entities to investigate and uncover the full truth surrounding the events of that horrible day."

富兰克林广场(Franklin Square)的决议为这一希望浪潮增添了一股热潮,宣布消防区全力支持(可能是)正在曼哈顿下城进行的大陪审团调查,同时也宣布该区支持"其他政府实体为调查和揭露那可怕一天事件的全部真相所做的一切努力"

"We're a tight-knit community and we never forget our fallen brothers and sisters.You better believe that when the entire fire service of New York State is on board,we will be an unstoppable force."
—Commissioner Christopher Gioia

"我们是一个关系紧密的社区,我们永远不会忘记我们倒下的兄弟姐妹。你最好相信,当整个纽约州的消防部门都参与进来时,我们将成为一股不可阻挡的力量。"ー克里斯托弗·乔亚局长

Speaking to those still present after the meeting,Gioia made it clear that this was the first step in a long process.Their goal now is to get every fire district in the state to go on record supporting a new 9/11 investigation.

会议结束后,焦亚向仍在场的人表示,这只是漫长过程中的第一步。他们现在的目标是让该州的每个消防区都公开支持一项新的9/11调查。

"We're a tight-knit community and we never forget our fallen brothers and sisters,"Gioia said."You better believe that when the entire fire service of New York State is on board,we will be an unstoppable force."

"我们是一个关系紧密的社区,我们永远不会忘记我们倒下的兄弟姐妹,"焦亚说。"你最好相信,当整个纽约州的消防部门都参与进来时,我们将成为一股不可阻挡的力量。"

After a pause,Gioia added,"We were the first fire district to pass this resolution.We won't be the last."

停顿片刻后,焦亚补充说:"我们是第一个通过这项决议的消防区。我们不会是最后一个。"
