Richard Marx

Sweatshirt worn by Staten Island recovery site worker
Working at the recovery site was an important and sobering assignment for thousands of law enforcement officers. FBI special agent Richard Marx, along with many others, wore sweatshirts imprinted with an inspirational statement in Latin. On the front is printed “Opus Dei” (God’s work), “Staten Island WTC Recovery.” On the rear is printed “Non Ignara Mali, Miseris Succurrere Disco” (No stranger to evil, I relieve the suffering of others).
