From reading and learning about 9/11, write about its impact. Read this New York Times story about a young man whose mother was lost that day. The four 9/11 attacks against the United States by the terrorist group al-Qaeda on Sept. 11, 2001 killed 2,996 people, injured over 6,000 others, and caused at least $10 billion in damage. Others have died of cancer and respiratory diseases related to the attacks. Respond to this challenge in any genre, from poetry to essay.
