NEW YORK CITY
Our trip to New York City was amazing! It was my dad’s 60th birthday and we spent the entire day in the city on New Year’s Day. Confetti was still falling from the skies as we walked around and explored the melting pot of people and cultures. New York City will always hold a special place in my heart. I was 17 when 9-11 happened, my dad went up and helped immediately, soon after I went up there and volunteered with him and the Salvation Army for a week. It was an experience that is still to this day engrained in me and when kids are learning about this event in history books I’ll know that I was there with my dad doing what we could to clean up the mess of the aftermath. New York City is everyone’s playground, home and starting point. The love and respect I have for it is unsurmountable. I❤NY!
