Remembering September 11thTwenty years ago today, none of our current students had yet been born. Twenty years ago today, the world changed forever. The World Trade Center Towers fell--two planes flew into the twin towers of the world trade center in Manhattan. Other planes flew into the Pentagon and crashed in Pennsylvania. Many people who still work at the Academy were here on that terrible day, September 11th, 2001, and none of us who experienced that day will ever forget it.The Towers stood in some ways for our sense of how the world worked, and when they fell--covering Manhattan island in white ash and disbelief--that world no longer made sense in the same way. There was a surge of patriotism that day and immediately after--pride in the regular people who became heroes and the first responders who ran toward danger instead of away from it, and pride in what was revealed especially in scenes from New York--and in the names of the nearly 3,000 dead. What we saw in those names was the fundamental diversity America is made of--the history of immigrants coming to this country and finding a place here--Irish, Italian, Spanish, Polish, Mexican, African, Indian, Chinese, Japanese, Iraqi, Afghani, Syrian, Lebanese. Whether we were conscious of it or not, a portion of the pride we felt in that moment involved a recognition that out of many we are one, bound not by being born here, or by sharing a religion or a race, but by a shared belief in an ideal of opportunity, equality, liberty and justice for all.We struggle with those last two words--“for all”--and that too is part of reckoning with the legacy of September 11th. We can’t look away from inequality, injustice, and disadvantage, or the conflict that exists here; and there is much more to say about the history and geopolitics of what led to and what followed that terrible day. But at this moment, I want simply to recognize that for this generation of students, the COVID-19 pandemic will have the same kind of power to shape how they encounter the world as 9/11 did for so many twenty years ago. Both events define indelibly a before and an after, reveal the best and worst of our humanity, and show us what tragedy is possible--but also what everyday heroism and grace is possible. ...
