It will be a day that will never be forgotten... A touching remembrance of 9/11, The Day The Towers Fell is a mother's poignant tribute to her firefighter son who, along with many heroic and brave comrades, died on that fateful day. Christopher Santora was a dutiful young man, and Maureen Santora's only son, who joined the New York Fire Academy and became a firefighter in January 2001. He would die a hero months later on September 11, 2001. So that the world would never forget, Maureen wrote a book - a colorfully illustrated picture book with artwork by her daughter Patricia - to recall the events of 9/11. First, it describes and shows the everyday scenes before the tragedy took place. It was the first day of school, after all, and some people were late for office - which may have helped save their lives. Then there are the not-so-ordinary scenes during and after the attacks, the planes crashing into the towers, and the panic and terror that were sown on the city's inhabitants. But it also recounts how regular citizens became heroes in their city's time of need, and highlights how goodness and decency will always be there to fight evil and hatred. More than just a book, The Day the Towers Fell is a memorial - to those who died and those who willingly gave up their lives to save as many as they could. And while they may be no longer with us, they are always with us in our hearts - forever remembered.
