A FIGHT TO REMEMBER : NIELS JORGENSEN 9/11 FDNY
December 3, 2021
“BREATHING FELT LIKE I WAS SWALLOWING RAZOR BLADES"
NIELS JORGENSEN, SEPTEMBER 11, 2001
A day that forever changed the course of American history- September 11th, 2001.
This week on the Code Red Podcast 22-year FDNY fireman, Niels Jorgensen, gives a powerful first-hand account of the Ground Zero rescue and recovery mission that cost many Americans their lives due to exposure to toxins in the air.
THE FIGHT DID NOT STOP ON SEPTEMBER 11TH.
After barely escaping with his life, Niels Jorgensen was told by his doctor that he would suffer and most-likely die from cancer set on by his exposure to toxins in the air on Ground Zero.
WHILE NIELS IS IN FULL REMISSION, THE TOTAL NUMBER OF PEOPLE WHO DIED FROM CANCERS DUE TO THE WRECKAGE HAS NOW OFFICIALLY SURPASSED THE TOTAL NUMBER OF DEATHS ON SEPTEMBER 11TH.
Since his retirement, Niels has dedicated his life to telling the stories of survivors who were impacted by this horrific event. His 20 for 20 Project is a podcast dedicated to telling the stories of 20 survivors of the 9/11 attacks.
Niels also addresses the disheartening truth that in most school districts, there is no formal curriculum to teach 9/11 history, and in some districts the history has been considered xenophobic and racist.
We hope you will tune in, and if you enjoy the episode we would really appreciate it if you would share with one other person who might be interested.
