America needs to stop obsession with Sept. 11
In looking back upon the tragedy that occurred one year ago today, ask yourself whether all of the hype is really warranted. Ask yourself if some of the actions taken by the people and government of the United States in response were more insidious than the actions of the hijackers who brought about this mess in the first place.

Tragedies don't have nationalities
In this day and age of patriotism, it is important to remember what Sept. 11, 2001 really was. It wasn't an "Attack on America," but an attack on so many innocent individuals whose lives have been unalterably traumatized.

The Raw Deahl: 9/11/02: A day like any other

As part of a security measure taken by the U.S. government, many international students are not being granted visas to come back to the United States, and all of them fit the same profile: Muslim, male, and between the ages of 15 and 45. None of them are terrorists, but some say they might be.

News of attacks surreal, eye-opening for ASU student, in Italy at the time
Few historical events have the power to freeze a certain moment in time. For our parents it was the Kennedy assassination.

ASU student experiences worst fear in her life
Although my family's story from Sept. 11, 2001 does not involve a fatality, it does involve the most fear I have ever felt in my life.
