The library has some flyer sized posters from the 9⁄11 Memorial and Museum to view this week from September 7th — September 11th. The exhibit recognizes the 20th anniversary of September 11th, 2001. The 9⁄11 Memorial and Museum describes the exhibit as such:
“…exhibition that presents the history of 9⁄11, its origins, and its ongoing implications. It explores the consequences of terrorism on individual lives and communities at the local, national, and international levels, and encourages critical thinking about the legacies of 9⁄11.
Twenty years after the attacks, with terrorism still a threat today, 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. 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. As we witness history unfolding in our own time, the ways we choose to respond—both large and small—can demonstrate the best of human nature after even the worst of days.”
This poster exhibition has been made possible in part by the National Endowment for the Humanities: Democracy demands wisdom.
