The Day That Changed My Life - James Zadroga Act 9/11

We all united and mourned the loss of lives and celebrated the first responders as they rushed to the scene to offer assistance - many of the responders perished. There were many who rushed in to help shortly after the towers fell and remained on the site for weeks on end assisting in the recovery and search efforts.
