Story:I was in my office on 51 Street and Lexington Avenue in New York City. I was looking at emails and some yelled from across the room that a plane hit one of the Twin Towers.

Memory:The strongest memory was watching the buildings come down. The horror of knowing that my cousin, Donald T. Jones, II of Cantor Fitzgerald was more than likely dead.

Affects:I think it has effected everyone in regards to personal safety. Realizing that terror attacks can strike at anytime, has made more aware of our surroundings. Things like "The Go-Bag" would never have been necessary to make if we weren't attacked. To attack innocent people is the most cowardly act anyone can make. But on a positive thought, it has given Americans a new sence of PRIDE in our country and a strength to see us through the difficult times ahead.
