Changed My Life
I was a stock broker in NYC on Sept 11, I wasnt at the twin towers, but our main office was on the 82nd floor of the south tower. I was at the the Exchange that morning and went outside when we heard the commotion. All the the rescue personel, and people running up Wall street..i saw the second plane hit.. the explosion.
I had been chasing the almighty dollar, 24 years old and had the world on a string, but then i saw those firefighters and first responders going into the buildings while everyone else was running away. My first thought when the north tower collapsed was " oh my god.. all those firefighters are dead"...and they were.
Two years later i became one of the brotherhood, and i look forward to going to work everyday... i have never regreted it for one minute.
