It's been eleven years since the 9/11 terrorist attacks in New York City. The horrific day is forever burned in our memories and on the 11th anniversary, many of us are taking time to remember the nearly 3,000 people who lost their lives. And while the entire country stops to reflect, one northern Michigan woman is sharing her personal story of losing her brother on September 11th, 2001.
Originally from New Jersey, Lauren Parks moved to Suttons Bay this summer. Her brother 47 year-old Robert Parks Jr. was at work inside the world trade center on that Tuesday, when two hijacked planes crashed into the twin towers. Eleven years later, Lauren's journey to heal continues. And part of healing, means reflecting back. 7&4's Kate Fox had the chance to sit down with her, where she shared the emotional details on her brother's death and the powerful legacy he leaves behind.
