Ventura, CA (PRWEB) December 11, 2006
William Rodriguez was the last person to exit the North Tower alive on September 11th and now he is being honored with the Good Karma Humanitarian Award of 2006 for his brave rescue efforts and continued advocacy for the victims of that fateful day.
Rodriguez, who worked as a janitor at the Word Trade Center for 20 years has inspired thousands around the globe by telling his personal story of heroism under extreme pressure. Not only did he single-handedly rescue fifteen (15) people from the WTC, but since he was the only person with the master key to the North Tower stairwells he led firefighters up the building, unlocking doors as they ascended, aiding in the successful evacuation of unknown hundreds.
If that wasn't enough, Rodriguez re-entered the Towers three times to help rescue people and survived the North Tower's collapse by diving beneath a fire truck. After receiving medical attention for his injuries, he then spent the rest of the day as a volunteer rescuing the injured and came back the next day to continue his heroic efforts.
The Humanitarian Award of 2006 is being given by Good Karma Public Relations, a small firm dedicated to raising awareness and providing low cost PR services for people and non profit organizations that give back to their communities - thus making the world a better place to live.
"I am really touched that someone thought enough of me to award me with some more Good Karma," says Rodriguez. "I already feel so lucky to be alive. I only did what I thought was the right thing and that was to save as many lives as possible. Many of my closest friends perished that day and I only wish I could have saved more people."
In addition to helping raise millions of dollars for the victims of 9/11 and their families, Rodriguez is also asking the government some very serious questions about gaps in the official story. He claims that he heard and felt a huge explosion in the basement levels below him before the plane hit the top of the building.
He was also vocal in calling for an immediate investigation and testified behind closed doors to the 9/11 Commission. Unfortunately his testimony was "omitted" from the final report. Despite the fact that his story was kept out of the official record, he continues to speak out to this day.
His speech on what really happened on 9/11 was recently heard by 22,000 Muslims in a London event and by millions on TV. "My mission - to find the truth and expose the lies of 9/11- is the dynamo that keeps me motivated," says Rodriguez. "Five years after the event we are all still hurting."
Rodriguez plans to continue traveling around the world to help train foreign governments on Disaster Management and to bring attention to the health concerns of thousands of first responders now sick with "Ground Zero Syndrome."
"William demonstrated such courage that day," says Julia Jecker of Good Karma PR, "But it's his continued work on behalf of the victims' families and his determination to find out who is really responsible for 9/11 that makes him so special. His remarkable bravery and commitment to spreading the truth has earned him this award."
