Twenty years ago, on September 11, 2001, our world changed forever. Stephen Siller, a young firefighter from Staten Island was one of thousands of lives lost while trying to save others from the collapsing twin towers. Afterward, his family, lead by brother, Frank Siller, started the Tunnel to Towers Foundation with the mission to pay off the mortgages of fallen first responders, easing the financial burden of loved ones left behind. Since that time, they've expanded their scope to encompass families of all first responders who don't make it home, and are building some of the most advanced "smart" homes for mortally wounded military personnel. It's their way of honoring their brother's life and by taking the advice of St. Francis, "Brothers and sisters, while you have time, do good." This is a powerful, moving, podcast episode on the eve of the 20th anniversary of 9/11. Prepare your hearts. ~ Delilah
