Eight years ago today, the worst terrorist attack in United States history destroyed twin emblems of our country, killed nearly three thousand people, and shattered countless lives. In the time since we, as a country, have tried to rebuild and to prosper despite the still smoking hole in our land, and in our hearts.
The attacks on 9/11 affected each and every person in this country, if not the world. We all have memories from this day seared into our minds -- some collective, but most personal. The Huffington Post is collecting photos and stories from that fateful day, as well as any event since that has been shaped by its memory, be it a memorial service, a charity fundraiser, or even a trip to the World Trade Center site.
