27- Remembering September 11, 2001

In this episode,

  • Remembering September 11, 2001
    • 9/11 events
    • Personal stories, and some recorded stories. The goal of this episode is not to glorify the day or our stories but just to put them out there.  We as a country pledged that “we will never forget” and there are college students now that don’t remember the day and a whole new generation, like my kids, who need to learn what happened.  Just a warning, this episode will have some emotional times so if you cry easily or frequently I suggest not listening to it while driving.
    • Dispatcher Mike’s Story
    • Dr. Steph’s Story
    • Greg’s story
    • Jeff’s story
  • Photos from the 9/11 Museum
