Steve Buscemi showed up at his old firehouse (Engine Company No.55)the day after the September 11th Attacks on the World trade center in New York to volunteer, working twelve-hour shifts for a week after the terrorist act, and digging through rubble with his old comrades looking for missing firefighters.
This man protected an orphanage (with 25 orphans run by this man's mother) in Kenya from a gang of thugs with machete. A hero! The Internet collected 65k (only 2k was needed) to help them secure the orphanage wall & land. *Making a Difference!* Hero!!
The Tribute in Light is an art installation of 88 searchlights placed next to the site of the World Trade Center in New York City. The instillation creates two vertical columns of light in remembrance of the World Trade Center towers and the September 11th 2001 terrorist attacks. They beam up into the night sky every year on September the 11th.
