“No greater love hath one than to lay down one’s life for his fellow man.”
The embodiment of that phrase can be found, for Jefferson Crowther and countless others, not only in their faith, but in the form of a red bandana. His young son Welles carried one around with him everywhere he went, a simple habit that became a tradition that would eventually be carried into his post-collegiate days.
On September 11th, 2001 the red bandana Welles carried with him into work at the World Trade Center would help place a name to the face of a young, mysterious hero who sacrificed his own life to save at least a dozen individuals.
Narrated by Edward Burns and written by ESPN’s Tom Rinaldi, this piece chronicling the life and heroism of a young man on 9/11 brings back all the emotion of that fateful day, and gives a reminder of just how powerful selflessness and love really can be.
