9/11: First Responders

  • Aired: 09/11/2011
  • 03:00
  • Rating: NR
"9/11: first responders" is a tribute to the thousands who made a life or death choice. A handful of those thousands recount their stories here...with admirable candor, humility and, sometimes, humor. They are our neighbors, our colleagues, our friends and family, who came to the attacked twin towers on the morning of September 11, 2001 and chose to stay.
