The images from 9/11 are burned in my memory. This is one of those images-

This is Port Authority Port Authority Police Officer Christopher Amoroso (r.) escorting a woman away from the World Trade Center. After he got the woman to safety, Officer Amoroso went back to the towers to help more people.

Officer Amoroso lost his life a short time after this photo was taken. 

A New York tv station, WNBC-TV, shared a story about that picture, and went on a search to find the woman that was helped by Officer Amoroso. Jaime Amoroso, Christopher's widow, was interviewed to talk about her husband's life and heroism. She always wondered about the woman who was helped by her husband. The reporter revealed that they had found the woman and set up a Zoom meeting so they could connect for the first time.
