On Sept. 11, I usually take a lot of time to look at pictures from the day and watch video of the attacks as they happened. For me, 9/11 was just the definition of surreal, so I have to make myself look at it again and again to let it really hit me-- that this horrible thing happened to very real people.

I was far away from NYC and D.C. on Sept. 11. These pictures of the destruction of the Towers, taken Sept. 13, 2001, take me closer.
