I always ask my students to watch this 9/11 memorial piece so we can discuss it in class. Here's the link.

Today I'm thinking of my brother David, who was very near to Ground Zero on that day, in addition to countless others whose stories I heard the following year--it seems like everyone knows someone who was involved in that tragedy.

I was on Cape Cod when 9/11 occurred and we watched the bombing of tower two as it happened. It was suddenly very quiet. No planes overhead, no one out, everyone glued to the television. This year I was on the Cape again. Many remembered the day seven years ago, but time marches on and many wounds have been healed.
