9780989805506: Chiefs, Pawns & Warriors: A Memoir of Firefighter Ron Parker's 9/11 Experience

"When I got tired, I remembered the cries I had heard from the first person I helped free from the concrete prison. I didn't want someone else's concrete prison to become their concrete grave, so I had to keep moving." Crawl through 20 stories of mangled steel, clouds of smoke and ash with Ron Parker in attempt to rescue thousands of civilians and first responders trapped beneath the fallen twin towers. Stand beside him while victims are recovered from the wreckage of the September 11th attacks. Fight alongside him when he is falsely accused of stealing from widows and orphans. His only choices are to be a chief, a pawn or a warrior, because being a victim is never an option. Walk with Ron as he uncovers a fresh foothold on the trek to find closure and move forward after the impossible parts of life. Learn why we don't have to choose to be victims. We can choose to be a chief who leads the way towards a cause, a pawn who follows a chief to get the work done or a warrior who actively defends a cause.
