Ten Years Ago
Many of us remember where we were ten years ago on September 11th. The news unfolded before us in real time - on TV, the radio, in the newspapers, and online. We can recall exactly where we were and what we were doing when we first learned about the attacks. In that way, we all have a personal account of that day.
These books retell personal experiences from people who were directly caught up in the attack and its aftermath. Each one is based on a specific perspective from a specific place, but they all recount the history of that day that changed the nation and the world.
