"The real voices of 9/11 are here, and they will echo down through history as a haunting reminder of loss and hope, courage and heroism."
-- Tom Brokaw
On September 11, 2001, waves of shock rippled through the country as the United States came under terrorist attack. Never Forget collects the unbelievably moving stories of survivors, rescue workers, volunteers, family members, and friends whose loved ones perished on that day -- from the moments the planes first struck the Twin Towers through the painstaking recovery efforts. As these unforgettable stories reveal, many Americans transcended their own confusion and despair to help one another escape, to offer one another kindness, and to affirm life in the face of catastrophe. This concert of voices shows, as never before, the heartbreaking grief and slow, but uplifting, healing process that the people of this nation have experienced individually and as one.
Collects the stories of people directly affected by the September 11 attacks, including New York City Police Commissioner Bernard B. Kerik, Fire Commissioner Thomas Von Essen, Mayor Rudolph Giuliani, and NYPD Lieutenant Tim McGinn.
