Ten years ago, ten years ago yesterday my life changed like so many others, but it was then that I decided to enlist. I had thought of it before but 9'll showed me this is what I needed to do.
I know my parents were worried about me going off to war after the wake of 9'11 and rightly so, but I was an American and my brothers and sisters died that day, the least I could do was fight for them.
In fact one of my dearest friends Corrine was supposed to be at work that day, on the eighty fifth floor of tower one. I didnt know for hours whether or not she had made it out. Later that day I found she had been running late due to a sick child and thankfully was not in the towers, but it was so close to comfort and she knew several that perished in those towers that day.
I lost my legs fighting but on 9'll nearly three thousand people lost their lives.
It was the least I could do, I will never forget 9'11 or the heros that emerged in the days that followed.
