Today’s heroes don’t wear capes. They don’t soar through the sky or have super powers. Most are just ordinary people like you and me. Welles Crowther was an ordinary young man with a red bandanna who made an extraordinary difference on the morning of September 11th, 2001. He graduated Boston College a year before I did, and I’m proud to call him a fellow Eagle. This is the touching story of his life. A life filled with compassion for others, even to the very end.

Everyone who can stand, stand now. If you can help others, do so.” – Welles Crowther
