I struggled with how to put today's historical relevance into a photo. There are so many emotions and perspectives and memories attached over the past 10 years that it's hard to even being to visualize it.

 

I remember waking up to the radio then sitting on my parent's bed watching the world change as my mom held my hand and tried to explain what was happening to my younger brother. I was in 12th grade in 2001 and when I walked down our street, I remember looking up to a clear blue sky and feeling goosebumps and almost fearing the sky.

 

The world will continue to heal.
