9/11 first-responder's awe - and shock upon return to Ground Zero site

9/11 first-responder to the World Trade Center, Jim LaPenna, returns to Ground Zero 10-years after he participated in rescue & recovery of WTC victims. He was one of the 5 people who rescued the two Port Authority Policemen who were trapped in the South Tower.

Mr. LaPenna has endured health impairments to his capacities as a result of exposure to the 9/11 ruins. He is welcomed by US Marine Corporal Sam Dillon, who came to dedicate his Purple Heart to 9/11 victims & first-responders. He takes us on a quick walk to the site of the proposed mosque at Ground Zero- and discovers that it has been approved and is functioning daily (and Mr. LaPenna explains his reaction to learning that).
