A Very Special Sonstein Sunday alert:
This Sunday, beginning at 6:55 am, I am proud to host the IHeartRadio special “9/11 - 17 Years Later: A Call for Action.” I have the inspiring stories of 2 families who turned their personal tragedies from that day into positive action to better our world.
First we speak with Frank Siller, co-founder and CEO of the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation. Also joining us is Carmela Raguso, whose mortgage was paid off by Tunnel To Towers after her FDNY husband Chris Raguso was killed in a helicopter crash in Iraq this year while he served in the NY Air National Guard.
Later I'm joined by the co-founders of the 9/11 Day Of Service, Jay Winuk & David Paine. Jay's brother Glenn, a partner in the law firm Holland & Knight, had been a volunteer fire fighter and EMS worker for over 20 years in Jericho. On 9/11 Glenn helped evacuate his offices and then instinctively went to the WTC to contribute in the rescue effort. He would sacrifice his life in the South Tower that day. Jay and David discuss how Glenn inspired their mission to change the way 9/11 is remembered.
Listen to me every Sunday at 6:55 am on Q104.3, or anytime, on my Sonstein Sessions podcast on the iHeartRadio app!
