Remembering September 11, 2001

This Sunday is the tenth anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks that transformed America. In the days following that event, we took some newspaper clippings and made a poster that could be brought out and displayed each year as a reminder of what happened. Here's a sampling of the headlines from the articles we preserved:

  • "US Attacked: Hijacked jets destroy twin towers and hit Pentagon in day of terror" New York Times, September 12, 2001 
  • "Unthinkable: Terror attacks in New York, Washington topple World Trade Center towers, slam Pentagon" Lowell Sun, September 11, 2001 
  • "Victims of the Boston flights" 
  • "Fire Department Learns Cruel Toll: 350 Comrades" 
  • "Entire Nation on High Alert as Security Is Stepped Up" 
  • "Bush leads prayer, visits aid crews; Senate, 98-0, backs use of armed force" New York Times, September 15, 2001 
  • "Entire nation on high alert as security is stepped up" 
  • "US jets pound front-line Taliban" 
  • "2 workers die and 2 are ill at Capital's postal center; inhaled anthrax indicated" 
and much, much more.
