1. When was this photo taken?
2. Where was this photo taken?
3. Who took this photo?
4. What are we looking at here?
A card I printed and it's reflection in the windshield of my car.
5. How does this old photo make you feel?
It makes me feel sad because the US government response was to start two wars. So many service members killed. So many civilians killed. War isn't about who's right, it's about who's left. Those first few days after the attacks, when so many of us felt so stunned, the world reached out. That was incredible. That makes me feel hopeful.
6. Is this what you expected to see?
No. I thought all the photos were of my childhood home because I remember taking photos of the house before my mom moved out.
7. Does this photo bring back any memories?
I'd printed this image because while I feel fortunate to live in America I have always felt connected to the idea of all humans being more alike than not, more connected with each other than not - regardless of political boundary. I put the card in my car after 9/11 when the whole world was reaching out to the US and the people of the US were reaching back - before the politicians stepped in.
I remember feeling very sure of my decision to go nursing school because in a world that was changing, I knew I wanted to be a helper.
8. How do you think others will respond to this photo?
We all remember where we were the day of the attack.
