We Will Never Forget – 20th Anniversary
I can remember September 11, 2001, as if it was yesterday. Twenty years have passed, and we have not forgotten those who tragically lost their lives at the World Trade Center.
On that horrifying day, some lives were saved by the heroic efforts of others whom we refer to as heroes. Welles Remy Crowther was one of them.
I had the honor of having his family join me on Family Comes First, in the episode, “No Greater Love.” Welles was a 24-year-old equities trader who worked on the 104th floor of the South Tower. The day the Trade Towers fell, Welles was no longer an equities trader. He became a firefighter. He drew from his training as a volunteer firefighter to put his life on the line in order to save many civilians. Welles carried a red bandana with him to symbolize his relationship with his father. Welles was often seen sporting a red bandana during his lacrosse games with Boston College, which is my alma mater.
“No Greater Love” will air Tuesday, September 7th at 5:30 PM.
For more information on additional efforts made by Alison and Jefferson Crowther to carry out Welles’ legacy,
be sure to visit our Family Comes First website.
I also had the privileged to honor those first responders who fought to save the lives of so many. On the show, “Heroes of 9/11,” we were joined by first responder, Tim Brown, a firefighter who responded to the call on September 11, 2001. He rushed immediately into ground zero.
Tim gives us a first-hand look into the events of the day and shares his story of the day. On September 11th, we lost 343 New York City firefighters, 37 port authority officers and 23 New York City police officers. All Heroes. “Heroes of 9-11” will be air Saturday, September 11th at 1:00 PM.
Watch the “Heroes of 9/11” episode online.
Both episodes I mentioned will appear on CFN during the week of September 7th.
