YJI Students Tackle 9-11 Meaning, Memories

Eleven years ago, shortly after a second plane plunged into the World Trade Center towers in New York City, Youth Journalism International students began writing about the attacks and what they meant. Over the years, there have been a lot of stories, all of them helping to put the terrible events of Sept. 11, 2001 into perspective, all of them trying to make sense of a nightmare that changed the course of history.

Follow this link to see some of the work that's been done, beginning with stories from last year's 10th anniversary and working backwards to the day itself. For those who lived through it, it may be helpful to consider that YJI has some new students today who were far too young to remember the attack itself. Time does move on.
