How one boy changed the life of a United States Senator
Believe it or not, I’ve been asked this question before. Basically, I think it would be tough, but it depends a lot on your living situation. Read my full answer here.

I’m proud of my uncle for all that he was able to do, and thankful to all the other medical responders and civilians who did what they could that day.
