Never Forget

Matt Lawrence, Darren Duke, Noah Kanter, David Bann and David Holdrook were ASL fellows in 2001 when the events of 9/11 indelibly stained our collective consciousness. In NY, Washington and a field in Pennsylvania, the tragic events of that day shook the world. And while we would all like to forget they happened, we cannot forget the lives lost or deny the new reality that was ushered in that morning. One where issues like security and counter-terrorism are more important than they have ever been. Are you up to the task?
