I watched Heroes of the 88th Floor tonight. It's the first show I have ever watched that had anything to do with 9/11. I envy any person who has ever had contact with this most incredible human being named Frank DeMartini. The world could use a lot more like him. God bless you!!

I watched the Heroes of the 88th Floor last night and was deeply moved by the story of Frank s dedication, leadership, and heroism. With sympathy to his family and gratitude for his selfless example of the best of human civilization.

It was my 8th birthday on the day of the attack. As an adult, listening to the stories from survivors about heros like Frank, makes me hope and pray that in a crisis I respond the way these heros did. I'm so afraid Id freeze up or curl in a ball in a moment like that. Its so hard to conceive of how people reacted so calmly with so much uncertainty. I'm so impressed and floored by the bravery and kindness people had for each other and it makes me angry that this happened to them. I'm so grateful their stories are told so I could hear it. I've been inspired and reminded that death is inevitable but I hope that I make it count someday like Frank and Pablo did. They seemed to face it all so unafraid of what would happen and that's the kind of bravery I aspire to have facing the world.
