We travel to relax, see smiling faces, and basically to enjoy life. That being said, sometimes people’s smiles turn into fear and cries. This is what we experienced a decade ago on September 11, 2001 in New York. The tragic event turned thousands of smiles to loud cries. Irrespective of what country we are from or where we were on that day, we can still feel the horror on that fateful day.
