What represents the September 11th event for you?
There is so much. Really the only thing I can think of when I think of this event is not only our flag, risen through the rubble, but how we, as the United States of America, bounced back against the terrorist attacks.
How did you react after the event?
My family went to church a lot more; we prayed for the victims and their families, to give George Bush wisdom to lead our great country through these dark times, and for all those who were in the planes, how they felt as they knew, seconds before their death, that it was all over......
Did your life and spirit change?
Yes. I believe that no one went unchanged by this tragic event, if not subtly.
How do you see the future after this event?
I think that although these terrorists took away the heart and soul of New York, it made us stronger and smarter as a whole in our country. America is, in it's small way, a better place.
