Summary
Describes the actions of firefighters, police officers, building workers, medical personnel, and individual citizens who helped in the aftermath of the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon on September 11, 2001. Out of the tragedy of the World Trade Center terrorist attack have come heroic stories of incredible courage, sacrifice, and patriotism. These stories of heroism are endless. Firefighters, police officers, building workers, medical personnel, civilian volunteers, and many more risked their lives in hopes of saving just one more life. The stories and images of these incredible events are honored in this book. With approximately 100 color photographs and inspiring text of the courage which has risen above the tragedy, this book serves as a remainder to everyone of all that's good about the spirit of America
