Remembering Perez living in Manhattan at the time. We had just graduated from NYU.
Being woken up with the news. Rushing to the roof of our building on Waverly Place and seeing the first building down and the other with an impossibly huge hole inside of it.
Going into hurricane survival mode from our years living in Miami and the uncertainty of what was gonna happen next. Withdrawing our cash from the ATM, buying water and canned food and just expecting the worst.
Living with the smell of what happened for months later, especially when it rained. A constant reminder of the horror that had happened - and could happen again!
Tomorrow is never guaranteed, a lesson we're very familiar with, which we were just reschooled in yesterday.
Live. Fully. Make mistakes. Take risks. Appreciate your family, your friends and your health.
Remember lost ones.
And let's MAKE THINGS HAPPEN!
