32 more names added to 9/11 Memorial Wall

It's been 16 years but, just a few days ago, more names were added to the Memorial Wall for 9/11. 

2,978 victims died that day but the losses continue to this day.

On Thursday, the Fire Department of New York added the names of 32 members who died of illnesses related to their work in the rescue and recovery effort at the World Trade Center.

FDNY added 32 more heroes to the 9/11 Memorial Wall this week, firefighters who recently died from illnesses related to their response on 9/11/01. #NeverForget #T2TRun #FDNY
