SHEEPSHEAD BAY - Nearly a decade removed from Sept. 11, 2001, a Brooklyn man has painted a mural to memorialize those killed in the attacks. Longtime Brooklyn resident Ray Fiore went to Ground Zero to help survivors in the rubble. "I come from a tough neighborhood, but there was nothing tougher than being there," he says. In the days afterwards, he painted an American flag on a nearby handball court, creating a lasting tribute. On the sides of the flag, Fiore etched the names of the victims, and adds more every year. He has around 300 now. "These people on the wall have become my angels," he says. "I feel that they look out for me, they protect me."
