Strangers struggling to get home amidst calamity became recipients of a heroic act of kindness.
What an amazing man. My brother is Matthew Morris, I didn’t know about his heroics until this article was published and shared years later by his wife. So many heroes and good citizens.
What a beautiful story about an amazing man! Thank you for sharing.
What a beautiful story; what a kind man. I too hope Mercedes is able to connect with some of the people he helped get home that day. But the inspiration I take from this most of all: "The answer: a reminder of perseverance. Light can cut through the dark, good can exist in the presence of bad, empathy and generosity can exceed tragedy." Amen.
That is beautiful. I hope all 7 respond.
I started reading the comments in hopes of seeing someone who was there respond.
Maybe they did, but I'm sorry to say the conversation immediately derailed with other topics that fill our minds and put us in overdrive on any given day. Can we not just take one day to rest and focus on different news that boosts our optimism and raises our hopes?
If someone had done something like that for me, they would be in my thoughts for the rest of my life.
Mano a Mano Coming to a military base near you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
After you hunted and hounded our President Trump do you really think we are going to let it go? Are you that fucking crazy? Do you not know that we have red HOT AMERICAN BLOOD in our veins and that we want REVENGE? Are you really so stupid that you do not know that?
The Edmunds Fittzgerald we all mourned. Civil War is Coming to America. Annie Get your Guns
Hopefully this will help bring 1 or more people who rode in the van to see this and respond! Hopefully you will update us on what happens,
Thank you for sharing.... with tears of course. .
Thanks, Dan, for telling us about this generous man. “Sixty Minuted” covered the brave fire fighters on that tragic day and left me in awe at their sacrifice. The
examples of kindness and self-sacrifice are so very ennobling.
Such a special story and a special man. Blessings to you and your family.
This one … really touched my heart! Good luck, Ms. Martinez!
The story of how Emilio reached out that day brought more tears. I was working at Johns Hopkins that day and I can’t remember a thing I did that day after watching the second plane fly into the WTC. I had just lost my husband on July 3rd. and when we were finally allowed to go home all I wanted to do was just talk to him and be reassured and held. Fast forward 20 years and I wonder if 7 strangers could even find an Emilio? What a wonderful man your father was Mercedes. I hope you get your answers.
God Bless, Cathy
This story brought a few tears to my eyes, followed by a smile. What a terrific story, Mercedes, and a wonderful way of remembrance for your dad. A little miracle on a really bad day.
