Don't Read This

Read this instead. The story of Rick Rescorla chronicles one of the great heroic acts of 9/11, a day full of American heroes. Born in Cornwall, England, an officer in the US Army during the Vietnam War, he saved all but two of the several thousand Morgan Stanley employees where he was security director. He was one, going back into the building to ensure he'd gotten everyone else out. He was never seen again.

Read "The Real Heroes Are Dead," an excellent New Yorker article.

Be proud to be an American today. It is his legacy.
