My family are Holocaust Survivors. Sadly, I was raised to be prepared for days like 9-11.
I have tried to lead an active life since then; got married had kids, and businesses, but I always feel that those buildings collapsing was just the beginning of something bigger, and no matter how much therapy I do, I can't shake it. Maybe living downtown and watching those buildings collapse from my rooftop had something to do with my uncertainty of a positive future:

When people complain about life and the struggle they face now, I encourage them by saying,"Hey, these are the good days, better enjoy it."

I try to live in the moment, but I look over my shoulder a couple of times a day.
