StoryCorps is made possible through funding from State Farm, the Atlantic philanthropies, and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. And most importantly, through the support of participants and listeners like you nationwide.

 

Welcome to the StoryCorps podcast, in this episode we’ll hear memories from September 11th, 2001. StoryCorps in the National September 11 Memorial Museum at the World Trade Center are working together to collect an oral history of that day. We hope to record interviews for each of the lives lost in the attacks. That’s how Diana DeVito and her 10-year-old son Frankie came to the Storycorps. Diana interviewed Frankie about losing his grandfather, Diana’s dad, Bill Steckman.

 

Steckman worked at nightshift atop one World Trade Center. As an engineer for NBC’s transmitter there. “We used to play Peter Pan, we used to use the screwdriver as swords, and pretended I was like Peter Pan that used captained hook. He always used to be in the garage, fixing up things with cousin Mikey and he also promised me take me to his work once, but  that’s not gonna happen ”

 

I know you were young when it happened, you were only in kindergarten, is there time that you were the most scared when all that was gone.

 

I didn’t know that something happened until I came to the living room, I knew you were upset, you’ve said there was something wrong with Papa, that made me sacred. And I remember that Mikey told me that planes crashed and he wasn’t coming back..

 

So I think you did make you feel better to go to sleep at night.

 

Going up to grandma or my parents, giving them a hug, rest on their shoulder, and sometimes I went to my bedroom, I pretended that grandpa was right there, nothing was wrong. And my teddy was right there so, that helps me.

 

Do you think you are different, now than you were before, when lost papa?

 

Yeah, I think I am different, thus being in certain places, when I’m at a happy time, just somewhere in my mind, he just won’t get out of there, he just stuck in my mind and that makes me a litter sadder, where I am. And I have a dream with him. I was imagining looks like seeing each other again. And being really happy as a family, without being sad or anything on September 11th.

 

If you could talk to him right now, what would you want to say?   

 

I love you and there is no other grandfather I’d rather see than you.
