There are people who run into burning buildings to save the rest of us.
There are people who go to dangerous places in order to protect us and they carry our wounded to safety.
366 of these people died trying to save others on September 11, 2001.
Hundreds more first responders survived and they continue to bear the pain of that day.
Over 16,000 still suffer from the consequences of the grisly search for survivors and the unbearable clean up.
We honor and remember them all – always.
