Reflecting on that horrendous day of 9/11 at the Freedom Tower and memorial in New York is a somber experience and for thousands if not millions will always be stingingly painful. Many young men and women saw that day as a call to arms and signed up to protect our country and our way of life which includes the son of the Permission To Start Dreaming organization. His cousin was killed at the Pentagon that day leaving an indelible mark to the heart and soul of her family left behind.
