My magical moment was when I went to New York City. I was born on 9-11-01. One lady decided to pick one baby from every state to be in the book, ‘’Faces of Hope.’’ I was the baby for Connecticut. One year ago we went to New York City for the 10th anniversary of the book. The author also made a second book ‘’10 years later.’’ When I was in New York and we were seeing the monuments, I really thought about what they meant. When I was older I found out what had happened that day. It was terrible. I am proud to be in that book. I have hope for the future and I hope other people do, too.
