I'll Heal in Time by Jillian Suarez of Radio Rookies

September 8, 2011 in Youthcast by Molly Adams

As the 10th anniversary of 9/11 approaches this week, a lot of people feel a sense of fatigue–some just aren’t interested in looking back. And one of them is 18-year old Jillian Suarez. She’s a member of Radio Rookies, a program at WNYC Radio in New York that teaches young people how to report their own stories for the air. Jillian is one of the 3000 young people who faced perhaps the biggest loss of all on September 11th: the death of a loved one.

As one of those who has trouble looking back ten years ago, I enjoyed this series of photos curated by The Atlantic. The pictures are from around the world and were all taken in the week leading up to the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. It shows how much our world has changed, how much it has remained the same, and proves that we will always, always be moving forward in life.
