He saved so many lives and probably Washington DC a lot of my friends -- -- working in the -- that day.
And it came out his wife Lisa with on television after he passed and she said.
When he was a child he drew pictures of an airplane and going down and he talked about it almost foreshadowing and he always knew he's a religious man but -- a bigger purpose.
On the -- and I think that's just such.
A hopeful story that god does that special people on this earth to do very special thing.
Green and I definitely this so many people to choose from because so many who rose to the occasion on 9/11 and two individuals not to put them together because.
Really two great Americans you know right there Franken my -- and -- -- are credited together with -- about fifty lives and 88 floor.
And ultimately -- parish and it was their action specifically just showing.
You know no kind of -- whatsoever going back in time and time again they had intimate knowledge of the construction of the building.
You can hear actually their point is on their radio they were able to communicate effectively and save other lives.
-- by communicating with law enforcement and fire department has to where people were trapped and just didn't really inspirational -- It is more courage of that one day than I think displayed any -- administers a -- you know I remember.
Former Olson who was a Republican.
But somebody who are sparred with -- on television -- for a lot of Republicans.
You can imagine but she was always somebody who was.
Hey -- a good decent argument she never went away angry she was very agreeable things she went down in the play in this -- pentagon and her husband is still alive.
And it was just very tragic she had a lot of friends both Democrats Republicans.

One of them Tom Maginnis is.
Good friends that drank a lot of points against what that guy.
It just needs to be said that the families the who've been left behind.
We should all say prayers for them we should all thank them for you know ever -- his being there and again to tell you guys these are the most patriotic people the people who work to get -- save some victims who -- actually pulled out of those buildings.
And there's not enough time to mention at all but but all of them are in our thoughts and it it in our prayers.
I had no close friends that died that day but my next door neighbors were these really brave guys in rescue one.
Eleven of them died Tuesday morning I know these guys because he used to play football in front of my building every day and I always complained.
When their sirens went off because it would wake me up and that morning those sirens -- Tuesday morning -- remember being really hung over.
Swearing about it having no idea that would be the last time that I heard those sirens and that I mean they were awesome guys and I was a jerk.
