CA 12/11/06 -- William Rodriguez was the last person to exit
the North Tower alive on September 11th and now he is being
honored with the Good Karma Humanitarian
Award of 2006 for his brave rescue efforts and continued
advocacy for the victims of that fateful day.
who worked as a janitor at the Word Trade Center for 20 years
has inspired thousands around the globe by telling his personal
story of heroism under extreme pressure. Not only did he single-handedly
rescue fifteen (15) people from the WTC, but since he was the
only person with the master key to the North Tower stairwells
he led firefighters up the building, unlocking doors as they
ascended, aiding in the successful evacuation of unknown hundreds.
that wasn't enough, Rodriguez re-entered the Towers three times
to help rescue people and survived the North Tower's collapse
by diving beneath a fire truck. After receiving medical attention
for his injuries, he then spent the rest of the day as a volunteer
rescuing the injured and came back the next day to continue
his heroic efforts.

Relations, a small firm dedicated to raising awareness and providing
low cost PR services for people and non profit organizations

a better place to live.
am really touched that someone thought enough of me to award
me with some more Good Karma," said Rodriguez. "I already feel
so lucky to be alive. I only did what I thought was the right
thing and that was to save as many lives as possible. Many of
my closest friends perished that day and I only wish I could
have saved more people."
addition to helping raise millions of dollars for the victims
of 9/11 and their families, Rodriguez is also asking the government
some very serious questions about gaps in the official story.
He claims that he heard and felt a huge explosion in the basement
levels below him before the plane hit the
top of the building.

testified behind closed doors to the 9/11 Commission. Unfortunately
his testimony was "omitted" from the final report. Despite the
fact that his story was kept out of the official record, he
continues to speak out to this day.

22,000 Muslims in a London event and by millions on TV. "My
mission - to find the truth and expose the lies of 9/11- is
the dynamo that keeps me motivated," says Rodriguez. "Five years
after the event we are all still hurting."

families and his determination to find out who is really responsible
for 9/11 that makes him so special. His remarkable bravery and
commitment to spreading the truth has earned him this award."
