UNITED WE STAND – BUT DON’T DARE LEAVE YOUR SHOES OUTSIDE
Eric Glazer, Esq.
Published September 11, 2023
For the rest of my life September 11th will always be
one of the toughest days of the year for me for obvious
reasons. I went to NYU which is located a short distance from
The Twin Towers. I would see them every day. They were as
permanent a fixture as there was. I went to a meeting of all of
the law schools in the country in one of the towers in 1989.
The fact that both of the buildings are not there still seems
incomprehensible to me.
The men and women who raced to the scene of the crime, these
first responders, were not just heroes, they were Superheroes.
None of them thought about their own safety for a second.
So many of these first responders developed terrible illnesses
after the fact. You have all heard about the breathing diseases
they now suffer from and of other tragic sicknesses they now
have as a result of flying to the scene and remaining at the
scene of the deadliest attack on our soil, until every man,
woman and child had a fair shake of being rescued or accounted
The whole nation could not thank these first responders enough.
The nation was so proud of each of them and we were so grateful
of their selflessness. Unless you were a condominium
association, and one of those first responders wanted to leave
their shoes outside the front door because their doctors said
bringing them inside would exacerbate their breathing problems.
This condominium would have none of it. Nothing I write can do
the story justice, so just click on the link below.
Today’s column is dedicated to all of the victims and all of the
first responders who continue to be victims to this day.
