I'm posting today to ask for your help. I was a relief worker inside Ground Zero in the days and months following September 11th. Over the past four years, I have developed and written a play called Hope in Chaos about the experiences of my Ground Zero team. It's the true story of our work on and around the pile, and what happened to us in the years since. It's about looking honestly at what happened to our city. We are producing the play in New York for the 10-year Memorial as a benefit for the Tribute WTC Visitor Center (www.tributewtc.org) We have assembled an amazing production team, including Broadway director Holly-Anne Ruggiero.

*But we need your help to make it happen.*
We've launched a fundraising campaign called "The Power of Ten" to raise money for the production costs. Any amout, no matter how small, MATTERS. Just like a decade ago the dedication and selflessness of each first responder became part of the enormous Ground Zero effort.

Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast says half of people in Europe and America are suspicious of the September 11 events in the United States.
"Many in the West blame the US government in the occurrence of the September 11 incident," IRNA reported Mehmanparast as saying at a press conference in the Iranian city of Isfahan on Thursday.
He also made a reference to the recent visit of the Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to New York for a United Nations General Assembly session on the UN's Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and said President Ahmadinejad's "trip to the UN was a good opportunity to set forth Iran's public diplomacy, which conveyed Iran's message to the world."
The spokesperson further pointed to the "dubious" nature of the 9/11 event and said, "The US government needs to allow for the clarification of ambiguities regarding the incident and to refrain from jumping into hasty conclusions."
