Twenty years ago, on Sept. 11, 2001, American life changed forever. 

When the towers fell, so did 3,000 people within them as well as countless victims after the fact. This loss shook the world to its core and the American way of life has never been the same since. Despite this, those who died during the events of the 9/11 terror attack and as a result of it are still honored every year on the anniversary of the day.

Schoolcraft College is also paying respects to the fallen by hosting a poster exhibition at the Bradner Library. From now until Sept. 20, those who lost their lives will be remembered in this showcase of 14 informational graphics that encapsulates what occurred on that day

The Bradner Library is one of many libraries across the country that will have these pieces displayed in recognition of the 20th anniversary of the attack.

The events of 9/11 and its aftermath remind us that we may never be able to prevent all the actions of people intent on harming others, but we do have control over how we respond to such events.” States the 9/11 Memorial website  “Whether by volunteering in our local communities, serving our nation in the military, caring for the sick, or through other efforts, all of us can help build the world in which we want to live.”

Each poster will memorialize the events in chronological order through pictures and personal stories as well as artifacts found in the 9/11 Memorial and Museum. The Series will conclude with how life has changed for American citizens since that day and how the event continues to shape the United States.

Pay respect to those who lost their lives and remember their sacrifice. Visit the Bradner library to learn about the day that changed the world.
