COUNTERACTING TERRORISM

A NEW GLOBAL VIEW—HOW MY LIFE CHANGED AFTER 9/11

A New Yorker reflects on the transforming effect terrorism has had on her global outlook—and on her prayer for the world.

On September 11, 2001, I was 2,000 miles from my New York City home, visiting my brother in Colorado. He woke me that morning to tell me there had been a terrorist attack on New York and the Pentagon. I was terrified: My five-year-old daughter was back home with my husband.

I prayed as best I could. And I was incredibly relieved, though still shaky, when my husband was finally able to call two hours later to let me know they were both safe.
