How do you come by your knowledge ("fact check") that this statement
"The "9/11 stairway kid hero" story is TRUE - and the people in the video clip were actually exactly who they presented themselves as."
is the truth? So you know that they're not crisis actors (right)?

Or another way of asking, do you know any of the people in the story (personally, or even acquaintance)? and btw, who are you?

I have been on this forum for almost a year, and had not seen this story yet, till your post tier4. So you just recently seen this story here and decided to post a brief visit because of a 10 years old hero/child story? And you probably won't tell us who you are. My name is Glen, what's your first name? Look my profile up and some of my posts, and you'll know who I am.

May ask another silly question tier4 (of which of course I don't expect any real answer ); Do you believe every story/hero of 9-11? All are true, none could be made up? Just askin'.

Yeah some parents out there are really horrible, this is true. I watched the Fox video reunion, Anthony (Deblase) claimed the mother was ahead of the boy (didn't say how far), but he claimed she looked back to see her son (then 9 year old), and Anthony assuaged her fears for the boy by gesturing to her that he was taking care of him, leading him out, holding the boy's hand. I personally would echo Paula's statement in the OP as a parent myself,

from Paula
especially leave him to the care of some man (surly a stranger) in a huge building seemingly in crisis and panic that had to be evacuated?? IMO the hero (cuz it was 9-11 for goodness sakes!!) parabol/paradigm has been invoked way too many times, feel good stories of course, just because it was 9-11; right.

Hello and thank for your reply / questions.
I noticed the dates on thread and didn't know if it would even get read but just decided to post anyway, pretty much exactly as you suggested!

And also, as you guessed - the basis for my statement is personal knowledge, from years of personal relationships with some of the folks in the news story. And i didn't think your questions were silly, especially considering that (from what I gather) much of the content of the site is around questioning these type of stories - which I think is a smart/ responsible thing to do! If we believed everything fed to us, we would be in pretty bad shape - at least I think I would.

And to answer your specific question, I don't believe all hero stories, and also know (second hand) of a couple of stories from that day that were fabricated by individuals, similar to what I am still hearing in my home state of NJ after Sandy - i.e. financially motivated tales for insurance payouts etc.

But just to reiterate, I only wanted to (and only feel I am in a position to) comment on this particular thread as I can confidently share what I know to be true. Anything else would just be my opinion, but I may peruse the site and offer some opinions as I do find the dialogue interesting.

Thanks again, pls know I mean no disrespect to any of the posters in addressing this thread - it's just not one of 'those' stories so I wanted to share - i know I may not have answered all of your questions but hope I clarified my reason / intention for posting.
