Life consists of different challenges -- mental, emotional, physical, and lifestyle -- more so after the World Trade Center incident on 11th September 2001. That incident will turn out to be a defining moment in our world and its people. Things will never be quite the same again.  This site will help you deal with and improve your response to these challenges.  No one said that life would be easy, but we could help make it better. 

We seek contributions from those who have faced these types of challenges and how they have overcome them. We hope that you find some things of interest to you. Please let us know any comments you might have.  Thanks for visiting this site.
