Everyone has a 9/11 story.
Mine is that I was four months pregnant with my second child; I remember lying on the couch and watching the events unfold. I still can recall the overwhelming feeling that my life was being forever changed. For this article, I spoke with three people from different professions, locations and perspectives about their 9/11 stories. Dr. James Zogby, head of the Arab American Institute, Kelly Ann Lynch, friend of Father Mychal Judge and founder of Mychal’s Message, and Krista Tippett, host of the National Public Radio program On Being, talked with me about their recollections of 9/11, how it changed their lives, and their perspective on the events 10 years later.
Here are their stories.
