“I’m hoping to have the LMDC decision voided by a judge and a reevaluation [of the submission­s],” Mango says. “I believe the LMDC failed to enforce the rules of the competition and there was a breach of contact between us because of that.

“We paid to get into the competition, and we agreed to be bound by the rules, and so did the jury. We had a reasonable expectation that the rules would be adhered to by the jury and enforced by the LMDC.”

I am glad that someone enjoyed my most. I am finding that it is important for me to get past what i lived i need to admit it happened. I am not a person that uses message boards, but i need to be able to use something to be able to share what i lived.

I am just willing to admit this happened. I have been afraid to admit I was a survivor due to losing so many people close to me, but I was a person pulled from the wreckage of the World Trade Center. It's hard for me to believe I survived this but I did. I lost a love of my life that day to just find another. I just felt it was time for me to truly admit it and leave this message to my children of my current family. It is strange to think that they would have never existed if I was not found in the wreckage of the WTC. I do not live in NY any longer and will never again, but it is time I admitted that I am a survivor and this shaped my future. I love everyone who died and I will never forget. All the dead will live in the eyes of my kids. I will make sure they always know why mom became the person she is today.

I am really interested in learning as much as I can about the twin towers before 9-11. as they were created. How do I know that the underground shopping mall, but how did that all work. Zivame
