The essay at the link below is by Kara McDermott, who is the daughter of Matthew McDermott who worked with Michael.  She was 3 years old on 9/11. She recently got early acceptance to Wake Forest.

The McDermott family is a very special part of our family.  I know it's not what we usually post but this is such a moving essay, I'd like to have it on the website to share with others.
