Long Island City, New York – WEBWIRE

He had always been special because he was my son. Now he is special because he was one of the 343 firefighters who gave his life helping others. He is part of a special group of heroes that will forever be part of history

They say that the bond between mother and son lasts a lifetime, and Maureen Santora’s My Son Christopher is unequivocal proof of that. 
Maureen takes us through Christopher’s life, from growing up as a precocious young boy to becoming a hero. In her book, she recalls how much her son wanted to be a firefighter to help save lives, and to be ranked among the courageous public service heroes. From being an elementary and middle school teacher, Christopher switched careers to pursue his dream of becoming a firefighter. On September 11, 2011, a dark day, he lost his life in the line of duty with 342 of his fellows, who will all be remembered and honored forever in American history.
“He had always been special because he was my son. Now he is special because he was one of the 343 firefighters who gave his life helping others. He is part of a special group of heroes that will forever be part of history,” she writes in her book.
My Son Christopher was among the many wonderful books that were featured at LitFire’s booth from September 2 to 4, 2016, during the AJC Decatur Book Festival.
