How should we remember 9/11?
For now, as conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan continue, it is too soon to know how 9/11 will be remembered or even if future generations will always commemorate the date. "We can put aside political disagreements for a day when names are read on 9/11 and then we go back to 364 days a year of haggling over whether we should've done this or that," said Gavriel Rosenfeld, a historian at Fairfield University in Connecticut. "It sums up the basic point that the whole story of 9/11 hasn't been written yet because we're still in the midst of it."

Skokie builds to remember
