10 years later

On September 11, 2001 I was in 8th grade. As media coverage of the tenth anniversary of 9/11 has grown, it has made me realize how much I was unable to grasp on that fateful day. So in the last few days, I’ve read and learned more than I have in the past 10 years. While I was lucky enough to not know anyone who was killed that day, I’ve grieved for the victims with each story I’ve read.

Below, a small compilation of the stories that touched me the most.

“When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love have always won. There have been tyrants and murderers, and for a time, they can seem invincible, but in the end, they always fall. Think of it–always.”
— Mahatma Gandhi
