Her Ex-Husband Called Her From The World Trade Center On 9/11

We all can still remember where we were and what was going on during that tragic day in September 2001. Here is a touching story of one person who had to say goodbye to someone they loved on that day.

Monique Ferrer came to StoryCorps to share her story about the events of September 11th. She was divorced from her husband, Michael Trinidad, and they had two kids together. Although they had been separated for a while, on 9/11, Trinidad called his ex-wife from the World Trade Center, where he worked.

While her words in telling the story paint a beautiful picture of Michael, the next part of the process takes to an amazing level.

Her interview was animated, adding image to her vividly told story.

The resulting video is heartbreaking.

When you hear the phrase “A picture is worth a thousand words”, this is a great example of the phrase being 100% true.
