Today is a very important day in American history, September 11th. Thirteen years ago, our country was changed forever when the Twin Towers were attacked in New York City. I was only in third grade when it happened.
My dad went back down in the coming weeks to help with the recovery effort at Ground Zero. He worked alongside countless other volunteers to clean up debris and work toward putting New York City back together again. I was extremely proud of him for helping out.
I did’t lose anyone on September 11, 2001, but I know a few people who did lose a loved one. My heart remains with everyone who was effected that day, the people who were killed and the countless emergency personnel, the families of victims, and with the people who volunteered their time to help with the aftermath.
