I dug this precious flattened penny out of my old golf bag recently. I must have been using it as a ball marker on the course back in high school.

With a group of students from Oregon, I visited New York, and the World Trade Center just 3 months before the attacks happened there in 2001. I remember not being able to see the top of the tower from my bus seat. It was incredible. The lobby was grand. We took a long elevator ride to the “Top of The World.” That’s what it says on my squished penny. I got it at the top. I recall the kind people that worked at the tower, and made our experience fun. I’m so glad I went.

I will never forget being on the Observation Deck that day, or the events that followed on September 11, 2001. R.I.P.
