WE’RE STILL HERE, by Benjamin Luft, M.D.

first Responders Share Their Stories of Courage, Survival and Renewal After 9/11 The companion to the PBS special that will air on 9/11/11, a decade after the horrific attack on the World Trade Center, which focuses specifically on the first person accounts of first responders, including firefighters, police, priests, counselors, even massage therapists.  Dr. Luft treated first responders at the time and has followed over 5,000 over a ten year period.  He has testified in Congress about the long-term effects of this tragedy on first responders and has established a treatment center for them.  Their acts of bravery and heroism, as well as their fears and trauma, are captured in what will be an important historical document.
