All-Video Mobile App Commemorates Tenth Anniversary
New York, NY—They were the faces of America: banker, firefighter, professor, sales clerk, administrator, baker. Then on one September morning, their lives were transformed in unimaginable ways as they moved forward out of terror and tragedy. Now they share their remarkable journeys in a special tenth-anniversary commemorative channel on the all-video mobile app Call on Faith.
The ten storytellers of 9/11 include:
Phyllis Rodriguez—A teacher in White Plains, NY. She lost her only son in Tower One but transcended grief and bitterness to reach out to the mother of Zacarias Moussaoui, the infamous "20th Hijacker"
Stanley Praimnath—As one of the few to escape from the offices of Fuji Bank, he felt called to change his life and left the trading desk for the pulpit of a little church in Queens, NY
Rais Bhuiyan—Far from Ground Zero in Dallas, a would-be avenger attacked this retail clerk and killed his co-worker. Though blind from a gunshot to the eye, he worked to save his assailant from death row.
Dan Holdridge—With the Pentagon in flames, he lay just a few feet from dozens of the dying, knowing his life could never be the same. Now he travels the nation urging his audiences to take up "Weapons of Mass Appreciation."
In addition to these and other stories, ON 9/11 offers meditations and original prayers from a variety of traditions for the tenth anniversary.
