"Never before in American history had our peace and well-being been so suddenly, fully, and unalterably changed as they were on the morning of September 11th, 2001."
This is a day I will never forget. I was a freshman in college, far from home. While I did not know anyone personally who lost their lives in this terrorist attack, this day left a permanent impression on me that will never leave me. It took a long time for me to be able to read anything about that day, but since then I have found some excellent books on the subject, despite the fact that I bawl my eyes out with every read.
