We’ve been so impressed and inspired by the number of stories about women coming out this week in commemoration of the 10th anniversary of 9/11:

Each of these features reacts to and breaks the silence around how women responded to and were affected by 9/11.

Below we're thrilled to feature quotes from six of the women included in TIME's gallery, revealing in their own words how 9/11 impacted their lives.

Lyzbeth Glick Best, widow of Jeremy Glick, passenger on Flight 93: "I'm a very peaceful person. I don't even agree with war. I don't believe in the death penalty. But that's my personal belief. I know many families do want more of a revenge. For me, I think judgment comes in another life from here. I do have some anger, but I really, over 10 years, have tried to let it go. My life now -- it's very joyous. I don't think you ever get over the loss or the pain. Just the other day I'm thinking, "He's really not coming back this time," or not in this lifetime, and 10 years later, that's still difficult for me to accept. But that doesn't mean I haven't found joy in my life. I think somewhere along the way I've learned to separate the pain from joy. I'm remarried to a wonderful man, and we have two beautiful children in addition to my older daughter. He has adopted my older daughter, so he's been a father to her since she was 4 years old. Life has moved forward. I teach college. I've had that job for almost 15 years. And my family is what's important to me."
