I find it ironic that I was born on Pearl Harbor Day, Dec. 7, fifteen years after it occurred, and later witnessed what happened at the World Trade Center 45 years later from an office building not far away.
If Pearl Harbor was my alpha, I vowed that the World Trade Tower attacks would not be my omega. It was not an easy road for me. I defy any eyewitness to say they did not suffer from post-traumatic stress syndrome. Thanks to ordinary people, most of us who survived made it through the other side.
