Every year on this day, we remember the brave heroes that put the lives of others before their own. Countless individuals died, and countless families torn apart from their losses. Though today is a sad day for many, it is also a day to commemorate our fallen and current heroes... one of which, Welles Crowther. Welles, a former Boston College lacrosse player, worked on the 104th floor of the World Trade Center as an equities trader, and on the day of Tuesday, September 11th, found himself in an extraordinary situation. A situation, that will forever label him as an American hero.
