On 9/11, as many tried to escape the wreckage and carnage in lower Manhattan, first responders rushed in. We remember that horrible day by taking a look at the sacrifice they made, courtesy of the documentary “Rescue, Recovery & Healing: The 9/11 Memorial Glade Dedication.” The piece was produced by New York’s WNET public media station.
