Joe Dittmar narrowly escaped from the doomed South Tower of the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. His eyewitness account of the sights, sounds, and scenes from inside and outside the World Trade Center complex presents an intriguing and gripping perspective on what really happened before, during, and after the terrorist attacks. Decisions – very small decisions made the difference between life and death for Dittmar on that day. His ordeal began with a slight flicker of conference room lights on the 105th floor at 8:48 a.m. At that instant, American Airlines Flight 11 ripped through the North Tower, only 120 feet away. 

The Always Remember Initiative is the passion and life goal of Dittmar with the mission of the Initiative to keep the voices, spirits, and memories of the 3,000 vanquished victims of that fateful day alive, always remembered and never forgotten by all Americans, particularly the youth of our country who are our future and our hope for a better world.
