I will never forget the day that my life changed. As a kid, living in New York City, I remember the towers being built. The size of the building was enormous and it seemed as if the twin towers were touching the sky. I remember being home and watching TV when the news broke about the attack. My heart dropped, I did not know what to say or do, but I did immediately picked up the phone and tried to reach my daughter who was in New York City at time.
This event will always be part of of my life and I will not forget the tragedy, and the response to it after. Several months ago, I traveled to New York City and went up Freedom Tower with my brother and his family. Reaching the top of the Freedom Tower brought me to tears, knowing no matter how hard we are hit and fall, this country will stand stronger and conquer those that threaten us with evil.
