YouSpeak: What Are Your Memories?
Students reflect on what the 2001 tragedy means to them
Most freshmen were eight years old, most seniors just entering middle school on September 11, 2001—the day four hijacked planes killed nearly 3,000 people, in New York and Pennsylvania and at the Pentagon. Since that time, the United States has fought two protracted wars—wars that have lasted more than half the lifetime of many undergraduates.
In a special edition of our weekly feature asking students to answer a single question, “YouSpeak” asks what students remember about the events of that day.
“YouSpeak” typically appears each Monday.
