It has been quite strange growing up in the ten years of aftermath. I daresay my adolescence and young adulthood would have looked quite different had the nation not experienced these attacks, or perhaps taken a different strategy in assuring the safety and freedom of its people and the people of the world.
Today I reflect, and wonder how these events will shape the rest of the nation's history and my own life.
