As a Senator for New York on September 11th, 2001, Hillary witnessed the devastation at the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and in Shanksville, Pennsylvania. Afterwards, she was deeply involved in the response and recovery efforts.

For her, every anniversary of 9/11 is an opportunity to commemorate the victims, survivors, first responders, and their families. So on this special episode of You and Me Both, she is joined by three people directly impacted by 9/11—to listen to their stories, and talk with them about how they’ve worked to rebuild their own lives and the lives of others.

Debbie St. John was walking to work on 9/11 when she was severely injured by falling debris from the second plane hitting the World Trade Center. She was one of the first survivors to be hospitalized, and one of the last to leave the hospital. While she continues to live with the trauma and pain from injuries sustained on that day, she now dedicates much of her time to writing a book on her story and how she was able to overcome opioid dependency.

Regina Wilson is a 22-year veteran with the Fire Department of the City of New York. She’s one of the few Black female firefighters among the ranks, and was on the scene and at Ground Zero in the aftermath, alongside her fellow first responders. Regina is a longtime advocate for the women first responders who served that day, and a past president of the Vulcan Society representing African American firefighters, EMTs, fire inspectors, fire marshals, and civilian employees of the FDNY.

Jay Winuk is a co-founder and executive vice president of the September 11 National Day of Service and Remembrance. After losing his brother Glenn on 9/11, Jay turned his grief into a remarkable effort to do good, and transform a day of tragedy into one service. 9/11 Day continues to be one of the biggest charitable events every year, organizing upwards of 30 million people around the world.
