On 9/11/01, Rudy Giuliani said to himself: “The English went through something worse than this. They went through being bombarded every day, bombed every night, not knowing who was going to be alive the next day. And they got through it. If they could get through it, we should be able to get through it.”

It has been an emotional day of remembrance for all of us in the United States. Read Forbes’ priceless interview with an extraordinary man, the former mayor of New York City, who used all of his previous life experience to rise to the unprecedented demands of the moment when New York City’s Twin Towers fell to foreign attack. And what a coincidence that Giuliani was reading a biography about Winston Churchill at the time.

There are no coincidences.
