TV Host Mike Rowe Memorializes Hero of 9/11: "This Guy Epitomized Bravery and Sacrifice"

Will Maule : Sep 11, 2018  Faithwire.com

"Tom Burnett's last act on earth was one of the most courageous things imaginable. And his last words to his wife, Deena, are among the most inspiring I've ever heard." -Mike Rowe

[Faithwire.com] Everybody's favorite television host, Mike Rowe, has become well-known for his measured response to the biggest scandal of the day.

Their bravery and heroism likely saved countless lives, and will never, ever be forgotten. (Photo: Tom Burnett/historycommons.org)

"Those exact words are at the top of this page, and the bottom. They were spoken seventeen years ago, under conditions I hope to never experience. I'll never forget Tom's last words. I hope you won't either"... Subscribe for free to Breaking Christian News here.
