Houstonian Billy Forney was working in New York on the 85th floor of One World Trade Center. He was one of the lucky ones, he made it out of the building while helping others along the way.
2,753 lives were taken directly from the attack and more in the following years, from exposure to toxic materials from the debris of the building. The attack remains the deadliest terrorist attack in American history.
Today, as we look to tomorrow's 20th anniversary of the September 11th attacks, we reflect on what happened that day.
Billy Forney and New York writer Damon DiMarco join us to discuss the collected stories of people who survived the collapse of the towers, came to help, or witnessed it, interviewed in the weeks following the attacks.
We also clarify information from yesterday's topic regarding COVID booster shots and third doses shots that are intended for the immunocompromised.
