911DA Story: Story

My father was in New York City on September 11 to go to the National Merchadise Show. They were over on the previous weekend but he dicided to stay and visit the city for a while. He and his girlfriend were going to the twin towers that night to see. They were the last group to go up at around 10pm. The service man said they may not be able to see very well so they gave them rain checks to come back the next day, dated September 11. My father got up there and could see very well so he took many pictures and he was the last one to get on the elevator to go down and he said he would have probably been the last visitor that day besides the workers to be on the top of the world trade center. He got the pictures developed and they are quiet nice. He still has the rain checks.
