Our headline from the cover page says it all. What we mean is that all the victims of the 9/11 attacks lost their lives that day, but they still carry on in the hearts and minds of their families and loved ones. That’s not all, however. Obviously, the people to whom they were important won’t forget them. However, even for those of us who lost no family or friends that day, it is also important to remember how and why all those people died. We lost more than just American citizens on 9/11; we also lost some of our country’s innocence. Stomaching 9/11: once is We cannot go back to a day or live in alternate reality where the Twin Towers still stand at the World Trade enough for graphic gore Center, but we will not turn away from that idea.
