Kathryn R. Herbert's brother Adam Lewis, a 36-year-old financial trader, died on 9/11 while on the 89th floor inside tower two.
"My brother was very successful at a very young age, but despite his success, he lit up a room when he entered the room with his intoxicating smile and his bigger than life personality," Herbert says.
Herbert says it's important for her to attend the ceremony so she can not only share a few words about her brother, but express her feelings about the attack.
