Vol. 15, No. 18  Sept. 12 - 25, 2002




On the anniversary of the World Trade Center tragedy, we asked readers how it has affected them and the nation.

"I'm more aware of what's around me... and what's going on in the world. I'm very frightened that's we're headed for another attack, and I just hope that our president gets the right advice."

Eileen Fusco

"After Sept. 11, I lost my job. It took me six months to find another job. I'm a little more cautious about everything - cautious about the kids, how I spend money - because the bottom line is that life is short."

Damon Sturdivant

"It caught me by surprise. I had three friends that passed away there. But I'm wondering, what's underneath all of that? I'm hearing America didn't know, but then I heard they had warnings. What are they going to do to prevent anything from happening again?"

Jason Roland

"It affected me financially, because I worked down there. Emotionally, it's still affecting me. Thinking about the anniversary, I know I'm going to be in tears. People say that they're getting back to 'normal,' but I don't really think so. It's not really ever going to be 'normal.'"

Rose Maldonado

"Sept. 11 was a big tragedy for Americans. I believe that we should all light candles and pray for the ones that were lost. We must continue to live our lives, the best possible way we can."
