It's hard for some of us to believe it's already been 18 years since the terrorist attacks of 9/11 in the year 2000.  Children born at that time are now adults, with no direct memories of the day. 

Survivors of the attack have vivid memories, especially the police and firefighters who responded to the World Trade Center site and had their health damaged by exposure to the clouds of debris.  Attorney William H. Groner fought for them in court, a story he tells in the book 9/12: The Epic Battle of the Ground Zero Responders.  Hear what it took to convince the City of New York, a court, and Congress that 10,000 men and women needed and deserved help.
