Season 2, Episode 13: Stand Up & Speak Up with Debby Montgomery Johnson and Ari Schonbrun.

Where were YOU on 9/11? My guest, Ari Schonbrun, was on the 78th floor or the World Trade Center, Tower One, after arriving 20 minutes later than he USUALLY got to work. His son’s Scholastic Book Order saved his life. Waiting for the elevator to take him to the upper floors, Ari recalls the EXPLOSION, sirens, smoke, and Virginia.

He then walks us down the 78 flights of Tower One stopping at the 75th Floor for “The Call”…the 50th for some encouragement…Down step by step. Listen in for the other stories. “RIVETING” and a first hand account from one of the few Cantor-Fitzgerald employees to survive that day. “Daddy’s Gotta Work” mantra changed that day and Ari will forever believe that God has a sense of humor and works in mysterious ways. Join us and REMEMBER where you were on 9/11/2001.
