Because it's Sept. 11, and because I have a WTC pencil, I thought to draw something (tasteful) to go with.

To represent fire fighters, I've chosen to draw Billy Blazes from 'Rescue Heroes'.

'Rescue Heroes' was a Flash-animated action series for younger children that had a line of action figures and vehicles to go with.
I admit I never watched this series (didn't care to ...still don't), but I recall after the events of 9-11-2001, the Rescue Heroes toy line received an appreciable spike in sales ...so much so that my local paper wrote an article about it (hence my choice of Billy Blazes). :3

To represent police (and police dogs, by extension) I've included Chase from the series 'Paw Patrol'.
...I like 'Paw Patrol', and have referenced the series several times in my gallery (I even share a name with one of the characters---can you guess which one?). :3

...and, yes, I'm aware BLM is trying to cancel 'Paw Patrol'. I don't want to read any more about it or discuss it further, so please refrain from commenting about that here.

Last, to represent paramedics, is Alex from 'Simba the King Lion'. I've written about Alex and the Simba series before---suffice it to say the series got my imagination going, but I'm not a fan (per se ...more an amused viewer, I was).

Granted, Alex would be better described as a field medic, but for obvious reasons, you're not going to see many actual 'paramedic' characters in children's cartoons (esp. in lead roles).
In place, you get the 'traveling-doctor' type (David the Gnome is a good example), or those who prevent accidents to begin with (as would describe the job of the 'Danger Rangers', etc).

...So. How'd I get a WTC pencil?

I bought it on eBay, but... I had to fight for it. The pencil was part of a lot of mixed pencils that were being sold auction-style.
I couldn't tell if the pencil was from the old building or the new (I couldn't read all the writing) but I knew I wanted it (it's from the new building ...but that's ok!).

I won the auction for only a few dollars, but there was a problem,

SELLER: "I'm very sorry. I seem to have misplaced the (lot). I canceled the order and will refund your money. I will be listing more pencils and similar lots. Let me know what you were after, I may be able to list something just for you. Again, I'm sorry"

One thing I didn't mention was the presence of some fairly valuable vintage pencils in that lot (and, again, the lot sold for only a few dollars). I could live without those others, but I really wanted the WTC pencil.

I'd normally let it go and get over it, but my cynicism got the best of me that day. I sent the seller a reply note,

CHIPPY: "...How much do you want for the WTC pencil? I'm a buyer; I'm interested. Just be honest and give me a price"

SELLER: "The green world trade center pencil? I looked and found that one by itself. If thats all you want you can have it. I will pay for the shipping"

...and they did (yes, I offered to buy something else that they could send the pencil along with, but the seller was honorable---I didn't need to buy anything from them).

The WTC pencil isn't worth anything---I'm sure there's a cup of these sitting on a reception desk, for the office's clients to take. But it does represent places I'd like to visit (NY; Ground Zero), but will never get to see IRL (so I didn't want to give the pencil up, if in fact it was still available).

This pencil came from "WM. H. McGee & Co. Inc.", which reads just as boring as it is (it's an attorney's office). Still, i'm glad to have it. ^_^

I asked politely not to bring this up... But, concisely, BLM doesn't like Chase because he isn't an evil poice dog (I'm not even joking). I think BLM has forgotten what it's fighting for and is (now) just trolling (which does more damage to its cause, IMHO).

that's...actually what most of their whole thing IS.

to state the truth:
Those that call others racist are the true racists. #Cop Lives Matter.
