Reigniting Passion: 9/11 Ten Years Later

Last week, a friend was driving her son to college, getting him ready for his first year. While on the way, the radio mentioned the upcoming tenth anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks. In the conversation about those attacks, she realized that he has, at best, a dim memory of the world before Sept. 11. He doesn’t remember a time when the country he lived in was not at war.
