Statement from Jerry Henson at Smithsonian press conference, May 2002
Im with you today solely due to the actions of these two brave young men [Thomas and Tarantino]. My box [of artifacts] represents all of the possessions that came out of that horrible thing with me. I would wish that the viewers of these artifacts could have just some concept of the incredible bravery that it took to come into that burning roomIll be forever in their debt.
