ADVERSITY & STRENGTH: 15 Years Later, 9/11 Survivors Share Their Stories in this POWERFUL Video [WATCH]

It has been 15 years since 9/11 happened. The survivors of the attack have shared their stories and it is something powerful. This video will leave you in tears, but motivate you in a way no one else can.

“My message to people is: ‘We will all be touched by adversity, or wounded at some point in our lives, but we can refuse to be held by it.’ And I think that’s why I survived,” explained Lauren Manning, who was in the North Tower at 8:46 a.m. when the first plane hit.

“Whatever it is, you just can’t give up. Because there’s always hope for a new beginning, if we work for it,” explained Helaina Hovitz, who was in middle school a few blocks away from the World Trade Center.
