My Son My Hero is a poignant and inspiring true story of a brave twenty-seven-year-old NYC Firefighter, named Christopher Mozzillo, who lost his life at the World Trade Center. Author Michael Mozzillo knew that before his son perished at the Trade Center he was a part of the biggest rescue effort in the history of the world. On 9/11/2001, Christopher Mozzillo helped save 25,000 lives: this is the story of a true American hero. Michael and his son made it a point every evening to tell each other about their day. After Chris's death, Michael replaced their talks with writing to his son every night. The excerpts from his journals reveal the tragic pain and difficult recovery process that he and his family faced, as well as the acts of kindness shown from people all over the world, and his perspective on the operations at the Trade Center recovery site. This loving memoir takes you through Chris's life and shares his generous spirit with the world. Michael Mozzillo wrote this book as a remembrance to his heroic son, Christopher, who has always been an inspiration to him. He is currently retired after having worked as a NYC Firefighter and a Fire Safety Director at the World Trade Center.
