Twenty years ago, the United States and world were changed forever as a result of the September 11th attacks in New York and Washington D.C. Two decades later, and 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 communities, serving 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.

Commemorating the 20th anniversary of the September 11th attacks, the 9/11 Memorial & Museum and National Endowment for the Humanities: Democracy Demands Wisdom presents September 11, 2001: The Day That Changed the World, an exhibit which explores the history of 9/11, its origins, and its ongoing implications. This series of posters reflects on the consequences of terrorism on individual lives and communities at local, national, and international levels. The exhibit encourages critical thinking about the legacy of 9/11 through personalized stories, archival photographs and images of artifacts from the 9/11 Memorial & Museum’s collection.

September 11, 2001: The Day That Changed the World will be on display at the Burlington County Library in Westampton through October 2021.
