How has your life changed because of what happened on September 11, 2001?

I was a kid who was at school at the time and I remember I was dismissed early. I remember people were freaking out around me and as a kid, I didn’t understand what was going on, but since I’m older now, I understand how much pain and trauma the loss still has on people today. My godmother worked at the World Trade Center at the time and thank God she left because my parents used to talk about that day when I was a kid and how lucky she was and is to be alive. Since 9/11, I’ve been to the memorial on separate occasions and I’ve talked to people about their take on the memorial.
