Remembering the Father I Never Met: A 9/11 Memorial

10 years after the tragedy of 9/11, children remember the fathers they lost

Rodney Wotton, 9

On Rodney's bed there is a stuffed dog that his father, 36-year-old IT manager Rodney Wotton, picked out for him before he was born. He loves the similarities he and his dad share (including a love of spaghetti), but feels the attack on Tower 2 that left him fatherless is unfair. "I think of my dad when I'm really mad," Rodney tells PEOPLE. "Probably because he would take my side."
