Compassion is still needed to help 9/11 survivors

On September 11, 2001, an American Airlines Boeing 767 loaded with 20,000 gallons of jet fuel crashed into the north tower of the World Trade Center in New York City. Eighteen minutes after the first plane hit, a second Boeing 767—United Airlines Flight 175—appeared out of the sky and turned sharply toward the World Trade Center. 

Almost 3,000 people died when terrorists flew hijacked planes into the Twin Towers and in the twenty years since 9/11, 3,900 people have died of conditions they contracted when the Twin Towers fell in plumes of toxic dust. According to ITV News, at least 22,000 people have since developed cancer, while 47,000 people have also been left with respiratory and other life-altering conditions.
