911 Memorial Stair Climb, Capitol Bldg Harrisburg Pa, 09/11/2019
The terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001 left 343 New York firefighters dead. Retired FDNY Lieutenant James J. O’Donnell survived that horrific day but attended over 150 memorial services for those that passed. Now, he shares the lives of 10 heroes who perished in the attacks, as told by their parents in “Sons of Valor, Parents of Faith.” “The crashing of two planes into the Twin Towers not only dismantled the buildings but hundreds of families as well. Mothers and fathers were left in the rubble of these attacks, searching for husbands, brothers and sons. Some of them never received answers nor recovered the bodies,” O’Donnell said. “The parents’ spiritual and emotional journeys can serve as an example of faith rising over despair.” “Sons of Valor, Parents of Faith” serves as a memorial to the lives and careers of 10 first responders who perished on 9/11. O’Donnell presents a unique and personal look at how the parents of these heroes were consoled by the FDNY Counseling Services Unit and the role that they played in helping them manage their grief in the aftermath of a national tragedy. In their own words, these faithful families share their sons' bravery and sacrifice so that it will never be forgotten. These parents not only recount the lives of their children but their own road to healing. O’Donnell takes a special look at the role faith played in the lives of those that perished and their families. “Sons of Valor, Parents of Faith is meant to help readers understand the stress, hardship and sometimes devastation that parents and families of first responders face,” O’Donnell said. “I also hope that readers realize the efforts and sacrifices of the FDNY and their families. Not only on that day but in the ensuing months and years.” Available at Amazon, Barnes and Noble and Westbow Press.
Registration is now open for the ninth Lancaster 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb. Join fellow firefighters as we remember the 343 FDNY brothers who made the ultimate sacrifice on September 11, 2001. This year's Stair Climb will be held on September 8, 2019 at Clipper Magazine Stadium in Lancaster PA. This event is affiliated with the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation and all net proceeds go directly to them. For more information visit our website at
They’re the ones who show up to help when we need it most. Now, an emerging crisis begs the question, who is there for Pennsylvania first responders when they’re the one in need?
