David Potorti on waging peace after 9/11

Americans reacted and continue to react to the 9/11 attacks in many different ways. Some went to war; David Potorti wages peace.


Potorti lost his brother Jim in the North Tower. In the days and weeks that followed, when it became clear that America would go to war in Afghanistan, he worried about other families who would suffer the loss of innocent lives as his own family had.  He became an anti-war activist, co-founding September 11th Families for Peaceful Tomorrows. David joins Alison Stewart to talk about his efforts.
