9/11 Responder Advocate John Feal Shares Life Advice: “You Only Die Once, You Live Every Day.”

 

John Feal is a 9/11 responder who lost half of his left foot when an 8,000-pound steel beam fell on him a week into nonstop rescue efforts in 2001. Since then, the former demolition foreman has become the leading advocate and face of the efforts to get compensation for first responders. That journey has come with a lot of wisdom, and twenty years after the tragedy, his words really hit home. “Nobody owns 9/11,” he reminds us. “We’re all shareholders.” » Subscribe to MSNBC:

  1. Thank you John Feal, you were not only a hero that day but you have been a hero everyday since, fighting for what is right.

    1. Biden Team, the mood swing, a childish play thing. The sad clown and the evil clown of the match sticks kids, the demonic babysitter that be, the evil clown “Burn it all down”. The reason fire and rescue is on the top of the Jan 6 rainbow committee hit list. The devil’s hit list of “Death to the Patriarchy”. Understanding the passion of the Roman blood bat Nancy Pelosi “I’m ready for my close up Mr. Devil” A hatred so intense it is transformed into highly narcotic thrill killer’s strangelove. The Nazi’s secret regime change recipe yes.

  2. They treated a first responder like this , our country policies are awful. Everything for the rich ,so little for the people.

    1. @Roger That LOL it’s cool, man. That’s a funny scene… June Cleaver from Leave It To Beaver, translating jive for the stewardess. Only the Zucker brothers could think up lunacy like that.

  3. It kind of weird seeing the liberal networks praising the police for running in all the while they call them white supremacist and killers? I guess for 1 day out of the year it’s ok to praise the police.

  4. PUNISH SAUDI ARABIA
    Bin Laden is from Saudi Arabia…
    The terrorists who blew up the twin towers are from Saudi Arabia…
    America blamed Yemen, Iraq, Afghanistan??

    2. @Rick Diaz yeah the one that actually wants to help Black people some people
      Don’t like BEGGING my culture for handouts. They love America

    1. @bettingru You _actually_ expect government emergency services to be stupid enough to rely on private telecommunication services?

    2. @TooBadThatDidn’tKillMe Sorry, but you have me mixed up with someone else. I know that 20 years ago cell companies were not yet part of any organized emergency services, private or civil.

    3. @bettingru it was Giuliani who wanted them to have their Command Post in that building which he was told was not a good idea and it was him who had them on those failing radios not cell phones.

  5. God bless this man and every single person lost directly or indirectly as a result of that horrific day. God bless us all and have mercy on all of us.

  6. The impeacment for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris is arriving and the USA will go became free this worst administrators that this country saw.

  7. It saddens me that the wisdom of John Feal is ignored by trolls who have filled the comment section with “impeach Biden”. There will be no unity 20 years later John. Terribly heart breaking. Donald Trump emboldened and encouraged, indeed incited, American Carnage.

  8. Was he sure thank Biden for surrendering to the Taliban, handing them Afghanistan, abandoning our citizens, allies, and 83 billion in state of the art US military equipment to the Taliban?

    1. @Roger That still waiting on you to answer my questions.
      Ever since I asked you’ve done nothing but deflect with your stupidity.
      And your stupidity is deflection from the questions to ask a a question

  9. Something funny about 911. Won’t uphold Bush to his mistakes. And talk about life n death right? Republicans? Why were we realy in Afghanistan? And why do you want to go back? We have people who were sacrificed for what? Families hurt and we put unholy people on pedestals like Trump and Giuliani. Thats a disgrace to the families and men n women who died for this.
