This is a Photshop Illustration inspired by all the 9/11 responders and their families.

Many 9/11 responders are still dying, due to the damaging health affects of the fallout from the explosion and debris.

Many have lost their jobs due to disabilities and are not recieving proper health care, due to the loss of their jobs… which allowed for health benefits.

Documentary films have been made to draw attention to the poor care taken, of those who now have severe health problems due to fall-out, and how they are not being properly cared for.

The photo used is titled:
Ground Zero_Public Domain.

Perhaps this will be a reminder to the public and it’s government just how much needs to be done still.

These are brave souls who risked everything and are being hidden away still today by our government.

ALSO DEDICATED TO MY FATHER (LOUIS B OAR~RETIRED)
AND MY SON (RYAN A MALICKI)
FELLOW FIREFIGHTERS AND BROTHERS IN ARMS

    Great work ! My Great Uncle was a fireman in his town, he sadly took his life a few years ago but his helmet hangs on my wall.

  • wow so sorry to hear that..my dad’s helmet is in the Reno firefighter museaum…he was Back-drafted out of a building (The Old Reno High School) and it cracked his hlemt down the center…he had broken ribs and legs but the helmet saved his life…he was blown right out of his shoes and when he returned to work they had them literally spit polished for him!!
