On the tenth anniversary of 9/11, (just a couple of days ago) I watched a movie on the channel TLC, called “Heroes of the 88th floor” about Pablo Ortiz and Frank de Martini. After watching it, I admire them a lot in my life.
But the first time I watched it, though, I was sad. Sad about what happened to the towers, and sad about all of the people who died in the crashes. But after a night or two, I slept on it, and realized the sacrifices that Pablo Ortiz and Frank de Martini made. All of that time that they were saving helpless people, they could have gone home to their families, and left even more people there to suffer, but even though they knew that the towers were going to collapse, they still need to help people. That shows how incredibly generous people can be… to give one life for seventy. I thank you so much for teaching him so. If I was in that position, I would probably not know what to do! I would not be that “cooled down”!
My name is Nick, I am 11 years old, and I am touched by the story of Pablo Ortiz, and Frank de Martini. During 9/11, we lived across the bay in New Jersey, and we could see the smoke billowing, and my mom was freaking out! A month after 9/11, my mom drove us up to the wreakage.
I hope that you are managing well after 9/11.

I never knew you, or heard of you, but a lady on youtube was saying how you saved her life, you deserve to be remembered as a hero! RIP god bless your family!

What saddens me is that he gave his life and his wife did not appreciate it. She received money for his death that she did not deserve. He seemed like a good man who died a horrible death and left an undeserving woman a rich widow.

I saw the TLC special on the Heroes of 88th Floor on Discovery. I was hoping you and Frank Demartini would make it. Your selfless heroism touched me. I would not have the courage you had helping those people in the midst of a disaster. I would have been shaking in fear. You are a true hero! Your sacrifice for your fellow man will always be in our hearts and minds forever.

My thoughts and prayers go out to all who lost their lives
on that bright September morning. May God bless all who
lost loved ones on that day. To the heroes who sacrificed
their lives for others to live. Our country lost so much
that day, but we always remain united as one. I am so proud to be an American. I also watched the special on Pablo Ortiz and Frank Demartins. They were 2 brave men who not thought of themselves but of others lives. God bless
these heroes of the 88th floor.
and God Bless America.
