My father died on 9/11 | David Ferrugio

I'm the host of DEAD Talks and it's time I tell my story and experience losing my father on September 11th. My father worked on the 105th Floor of Tower 1 of the World Trade Center with Cantor Fitzgerald. I was 12 years old when it happened and I share my perspectives of this experience as a 33 year old man today. I spoke unscripted, alone and from the heart. I hope this story resonates with some people and that I was able to express my thoughts thoroughly, as my goal was to keep it raw and honest. That day sucked for a lot of people outside of me. September 11th shaped my life forever and this is my story which inspired this podcast.
