Description: Tuesday, Sept. 11, started off like any other day at New York City’s Stuyvesant High School, located only a few blocks away from the World Trade Center. The semester was just beginning, and the students, faculty, and staff were ready to start a new year. But within a few hours on that Tuesday morning, they would share an experience that would transform their lives—and the lives of all Americans.
A deeply moving play remembering Sept. 11, 2001, written by high school students who witnessed the tragedy unfold, With Their Eyes remembers those who were lost and those who were forced to witness this tragedy. Here, in their own words, are the firsthand stories of a day we will never forget.
