So many stories of heroism on September 11, 2001, have emerged after that day.
One of the standouts is the story of Firefighter Stephen Siller. When he heard what was going on at the World Trade Center he tried to drive through the Brooklyn-Battery Tunnel to help.
The tunnel was already closed to traffic, but that did not stop Stephen. Carrying 60 pounds of gear, he ran partway through the tunnel, was picked up by a fire truck, and then perished in the World Trade Center collapse.
Thousands will honor Stephen's memory by recreating his heroic run in the annual Tunnel to Towers Run on Sept. 30, 2012.
Frank Siller, Stephen's brother, is the founder of the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation, which organizes the run.
