This film is a brief tribute to a few of them. Particularly the Vigiano family that lost two sons (a firefighter and a police officer)in the World Trade Centers. These men and those like them were heroes and civic role models.
No greater love has a person than to lay down ones life for a friend.
After watching this film, I am moved to say thank you to every police officer, firefighter and first response person. I was saddened by the tragedy but also extremely encouraged to get a glimpse at the quality of goodness in the people that helped save so many lives that day.
As noted by the editorial review, this documentary feels abruptly cut short: after all, the main subject of the piece, DET Joseph V. Vigiano, died in the September 11th attacks. What began as a look at the lives and work of the EST becomes a memorial to what we lost that day in the form of a father who lost his two sons (Det. Joseph Viggiano and his brother John, a NYC fireman) in the attacks.
It is the incompleteness of this documentary, and the profound sense of unfulfilled curiosity about the men it profiles, that leads me to grant the story four stars instead of five. In no way is it an idictment of its ability to stir and inspire.
My complaint is that this video should have been called "Joe Vigiano's Story" for there was absolutely NOTHING on his brother John. The "only thing"
we found out was that John was a firefighter & he died in the Trader Centers & that's about it. The entire story was about Joe. VERY misleading due to the cover & the info on the back of case.

It's a great movie. A short one, but for the price that I found it, totally worth it, especially if you have any interest in police, fire or 9/11 history in general.Published on October 2, 2013 by Matt
