Interview with 9/11 First Responder and Advocate John Feal

Image
  John Feal is an American political activist and retired construction worker from Commack, NY, known for his advocacy on behalf of first responders to the September 11 attacks . In 2001, Feal was a demolition supervisor at Ground Zero when a falling steel beam landed on his foot. He developed gangrene , then sepsis , and eventually required partial amputation . As Feal's injury occurred just outside of a 96-hour window following the attack, he was denied compensation for the injury. The denial led to him becoming an advocate for 9/11 first responders. [1] [2] Feal founded the FealGood Foundation , dedicated toward lobbying members of the U.S. Congress to provide additional funding to 9/11 responders, as well as connecting responders with various resources. [3] In 2019, Feal worked closely with comedian and fellow advocate Jon Stewart to lobby Congress for the renewal of a 9/11 victim's compensation fund.  Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Feal

Meeink served his prison term near Springfield, Illinois. Prison changed his life. He met people of many different ethnicities.
