New York Police Department Deputy Inspector Terri Tobin was buried in the rubble of the old towers twice on September 11, 2001. She had a huge glass pane lodged in her back and cinder block cut her skull.

What can I do to get more involved with the Women's Center
The Women’s Center is open M-F from 8:30a-5p. During these hours, the doors are always open and you are welcome to stop by and take a tour! Bring your homework and study, have a group meeting in the space…do whatever it is that you feel. But why don’t you start by taking a look…

Moreover, has she run her course in history?
