NYFD widow talks about exhibit

SAN ANTONIO - For Maryann O'Rourke, 9/11 is a day she will never forget. It's the day she lost her husband, New York firefighter Kevin O'Rourke.

"They found him between the 66th and 67th floor in a stairwell with the guys in his company," she said.

On the 15th anniversary of 9/11, O'Rourke traveled from New York to San Antonio to help unveil the Ground Zero 360 exhibition that honors first responders like her husband who lost their lives on 9/11.

"The people that were killed that's who should be remembered, not the people who committed this terrible act and that's what this exhibit does it remembers those people who made the sacrifice," she said.

Her husband's helmet, award, and picture are all part of the exhibition.

"My husband was all about helping people and now he's remembered for it," she said.

The exhibition has traveled all over the world and will be at the Patriots' Casa at Texas A&M University San Antonio until Oct. 17 and then move to the former federal reserve building on 126 East Nueva Street until Feb. 17.
