{Sept. 11th changed everything in my life on what I thought I wanted in mine and my son life.} That morning had became in everyday thing to me, get up and get me and my son ready. so that i can go to work and him to go to daycare, and my stepfather was ou working in the apartments where we live at. I was already running late (sleeping in), going out the door to leave my my stepfather runs in yelling “we’ve been hit, we’re being attack, it’s all on t.v.” and turns the t.v. on.

I was standing at the door and seen where the tower was hit. At first I thought it was just another movie at first, then it hit me that this was real. And I hit the floor crying b/c there’s so many poeple all around and inside. I didn’t know what to do, to go to work or just stay there in my home and hold my son for dear life and pray that this wasn’t true. I desided to go to work when I got there, no one said anything to anyone. We all just stood around watching the news most of the day. MY life (to me, family, and friends) hasn’t been the same since. all i’ve done since then is put my life around this day (the news and the people was there). I don’t know whats going to end happen but i know that I’m willing do anything if or when able to help us make it through this.
