Six years

Today is the anniversary, on the Gregorian calendar, of the attacks on our city and country by Osama bin Laden and his Arab butchers. Amid the unmitigated evil of that day there were deeds of bravery, from police, firefighters and other first responders from whom we expect as much, but also from ordinary people rising to extraordinary heights. One of these was Abe Zelmanowitz, who could have escaped but chose instead to stay with his quadriplegic friend, a Gentile, until help could arrive. It never did, and they perished together.

Here is his story.
