9/11 exhibit in Houston thru January 11

9:11

When former NYPD police officer James Smith talks about his wife Moira. It’s with a mix of pride and sadness. She was a police officer too, one of those heroes who rushed to danger on that horrible day instead of running away from it. She died when the South Tower collapsed.

“I promised myself I wouldn’t mourn forever. I mourn privately but I celebrate her life daily.” He says.

That’s why he’s loaned some of her personal effects to the traveling Ground Zero 360 exhibit on display at the Holocaust Museum. Not just her hat but her medal of honor and her radio.

“She survived the initial collapse and was trapped and it was her calling for help. She had it out.”

And there’s the poignant photo of her two year old daughter accepting the American flag off her casket at her funeral. There are many photos in the exhibit, photos you’ve never seen taken by photographer Nicola McClean. She was working for Irish media outlets and managed to get into the frozen zone to capture these images. She’s not traveling with the exhibit because she just had a baby. But her husband is here. The former NYPD deputy inspector also spent three months at ground zero. This project is their therapy.

The Exhibit opened to the public on Friday the 12th and will run to January 11th. On September 20 and 21st it will be free for Houston area first responders and their families.
