Deborah Magdalena - Inspired Word July 2011 Photo By JAYFRANCO

On September 11, 2001 a phone call from her best friend Tanya drastically changed the course of Deborah Magdalena’s life. She felt like her spirit was about to jump out of her body when she learned that Tanya's firefighter fiancé, Sergio Gabriel Villanueva was down at the South Tower of the World Trade Center.
