The massacre was the deadliest mass shooting in modern American history, and the worst United States terror attack since September 11, 2001.

"And then seeing Paris happen directly after that, then seeing Manchester happening most recently and it's like, when is it ever going to end?" She's now writing a book about her experience and continues to figure out what she wants to do professionally in the future.

"Sometimes they cried, sometimes they laughed, but each one, without a shadow of cliche, told us that they get up each day, put one foot in front of the other, and no longer take life for granted", Fogarty said of the interviews, which took place over four days in May. "What my goal is and how I can use my voice effectively to actually see some sort of change happening".

"I just felt like I could hear them if I was praying here and talking here". "I wasn't there more than ten minutes and the Federal Bureau of Investigation called". "I really, really do".
