    Few words can express how much your dedication and your friendship means to me. 9/11 is a day that robbed us of so much. Thank you from my heart to yours for sharing so much in words, pictures and generosity. Carl knew first hand the incredible work the Burn Center does for all our brave firefighters and would be so honored by your incredible tribute.

    your friend, Michele (widow of Carl J.Bedigian)

    Your book is beautiful Ronnie. You can feel the extreme emotions of that day. As Greg said, “…it is a true testament…,” to you and to the events of that day. Thank you for creating this national testimonial in such a personal way.

    I just got your book today on the mail, on sept 11 2010… what a coincidence. Thank you so much.
    I’ve been reading it and the images are so powerful, touching and personal as your lecture in Portland. As a foreign student who spend 4 years in NY, this city became like a second home to me so I thank you for recording the event with so much respect and humbleness.
    I wish you great success!!!
