Raising 911 Babies
I really struggled with this one. Teresa Cunningham is a 911 widow. Her son was 13 days old on the day her husband was killed on the 84th floor of the twin towers. Her challenges as a mom are monumental. Her son is going into high school and he has spent a lifetime wondering who his dad was and the trying to process the gravity of the day that forever changed his life and his moms. So I have decided to run the interview in its entirety, rather than try and edit it down into the perfect length for a podcast in the hope that somehow length represents quality. You can hear clips on 710 WOR during Len and Todd in the morning on 9/9 . But for once, hear the whole story, maybe it will forever change your life.
Teresa’s husband was married to a Brit and so she was chosen to testify at the trial of Zacarias Moussaoui, also known as the 20th hijacker. She touches on that and at the end of the podcast she talks about what loved ones of those who died on 911 would really appreciate. Congressional action on The Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act . 29 pages of the Joint Inquiry of Congress investigation into the U.S. government intelligence failures prior to 9/11 have been released and prove the Saudi’s had a hand in financing the terrorists responsible for 911. The legislation would make clear that “no foreign state is entitled to immunity for its involvement in a terrorist act on American Soil.
