Every year I dread 9/11. It’s a dark day that I hate to think about, much less speak about. It’s a national day of remembrance, but all I remember is the lost of a loved one — and the loss of my innocence. When I was a child I was ambushed with videos of the towers crumbling apart; the towers in which my loved ones worked.
Ryan Frost, author and University of Richmond alumnus, debuted his most recent play, “September 12th,” on Sept. 10 and 11 at the Virginia Repertory Theatre. The script was based on Frost's experience of 9/11 as a freshman at Richmond.

Of all the responses to this week's tragedy in Boston, perhaps the most cogent came from The Onion, a cerebrally satirical news publication. The article, titled "This What World Like Now," is written with mock quotes from people resigned to living "in a time and place where expecting the worst and feeling slightly afraid of what awful thing will happen next is the default state of being."
Being young - only in fourth grade - it was hard for me to understand the extent of the catastrophe that had occurred. Looking back now, 9/11 has forever changed my life. Because I lived just 20 minutes or so outside the city, my family knew many people who worked downtown and, more importantly, in the towers.
Journalists played an imperative role in informing the world about the attacks through their coverage, and the staff members of the Collegian in September 2001 were no different. They not only remember Sept. 11 as University of Richmond students, but also as journalists attempting to get information out to their peers and professors.
On the morning of Sept. 11, 2001, Mike Clements, who graduated in 2004, was in his University of Richmond dorm room when the first plane hit the North Tower.
Ten years ago on Sept. 11, three Richmond staff members were in shock and disbelief over what was occurring in the nation. One was coming to work, one was leaving a meeting and one was in an office, yet all were unnerved.
At nearly every sporting event leading up to the 10th anniversary of Sept. 11, fans were asked to bow their heads for a moment of silence to reflect on the victims and the heroes who died, and for the thousands of Americans who lost loved ones that day.
I first heard about 9/11 when I met my mum outside my school. She told me what had happened and at that point everyone still thought it had been an accident. It is one of those events that you never forget where you were when you found out. Obviously as the afternoon went on, the truth became clear. I just remember how much the nation pulled together to support each other through such a terrible time. I visited Ground Zero when I was in the States and while an eerie atmosphere was present, more prevalent was the notion of pride in the nation and hope for the future.
The University of Richmond held a 9/11 memorial service last Sunday to remember those who died on September 11, 2001.
