"Let's go—let's find what we can do," Tiernach Cassidy recalls saying to fellow New York City firefighters the moment he peered through the black dust cloud and realized he was still alive after the collapse of one of the World Trade Center's twin towers. This quietly powerful two-hour special, based on Dennis Smith's best-selling book, honors that spirit of unpretentious heroism. Rescuers who made it through Sept. 11 recall friends, brothers and sons who lost their lives. Sadness, relief and bewilderment mix as survivors wonder why they were spared.

How could a good God allow the destruction of that day? That question is explored deeply in another 9/11 program, PBS's Faith and Doubt at Ground Zero, a special Frontline airing Sept. 3 at 9 (repeating Sept. 11 at 8).
