Photo by @henryleutwyler / The pants of New Jersey volunteer EMT Greg Gully, worn on 9/11. When Gully learned of the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center, he grabbed some supplies and made his way to the twin towers. When he finally returned home, he put his pants on a hanger with the dust still clinging to them, and he attached a handwritten note: “Pants worn on 9-11-01 at the WTC. Please DO NOT WASH. The ash is the remains of those that died. God Bless Them!” When Gully donated the pants to the 9/11 Memorial and Museum in 2012, he attached a singed shipping invoice that he’d snatched out of the blizzard of paper in the air and tucked in his pocket. It came from Marsh & McLennan, an insurance company that took a direct hit from the plane that slammed into the north tower. The firm lost more than 350 people. This image is courtesy of 128 gift of Greg Gully, EMT.
