The children of 9/11 are about to vote

Nicole: I’ve heard a lot that people are forgetting about 9/11. I really hope that’s not true.

Chloe: Every single day since I was born, we haven’t been in a time where we’re at peace.

Tawny: It was definitely one of the scariest parts of my childhood, because I believe the earliest memory I can conjure overall was my father was leaving to go fight in the Iraq war, Operation Iraqi Freedom. That was very, very scary for my family.

Aidan: I haven’t honestly thought about it as much as I probably should.

Dylan, computer science student, Arlington, Va.: I don’t think we learned about it a whole lot in school.

Kelli: We don’t talk about that in school that much.
