    Jonathan’s father, Lee, is the driving force behind the 9/11 Visitor’s Center across the street from Ground Zero. Lee is doing great work to assure that America never forgets 9/11. If you have not been there, please click on http://www.tributewtc.org/index.php
    and visit their facility when in New York.

    Tribute WTC Visitor Center
    120 Liberty Street
    NY, NY 10006

    (between Greenwich and Church Streets, on the south side of Ground Zero, next to FDNY Firehouse Engine 10 Ladder 10)

    I carried Jonathan in the 9/11 memorial stair climb in Charlotte, NC. He gave me the strength to climb the 110 floor for the first time in my life. As a rookie firefighter at a volunteer department I felt a connection between us as we climbed. I now keep in the jacket of my turnout gear so that he is with me on every call that I run.
