Vycki Higley-Pratt of Danbury stands with her three daughters, Amanda, 14, right, Robyn, 9, left, and Casey, 6, front. Amanda was four years old and Vycki was seven months pregnant with Robyn when her husband Rob Higley perished in the terrorist attack of 9/11. She has since remarried and gave birth to daughter Casey Pratt 6 years ago. President Barack Obama announced the death of Osama bin Laden last Sunday, the day Amanda celebrated her 14th birthday.
