    My husband, Larry, and I had been training, or so I thought, for the Avon Breast Cancer Three-Day, a 60-mile walk in from Santa Barbara to Malibu last October.

    September 13, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    Terrorism, a part of everyday life in Israel for decades, exploded in the face of a complacent America with the twin terror attacks that destroyed the World Trade Center in New York on Sept. 11 and left a gaping, charred hole in the Pentagon in Washington.

    The bombings could have...

    When Rabbi Shlomo Schwartz (Schwartzie) received a 6:15 a.m. phone call saying that the World Trade Center had been bombed, he told his caller he'd been watching too many science fiction movies and advised him to get more sleep.

    "But then, when I received another eight calls in...

  • Armageddon

    By Rob Eshman

    September 13, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    Early Tuesday morning, my wife and I stared dumbly at the television, mumbling words like hijacked, explosion, collapse. My daughter, 5, looked up from her cereal, confused and frustrated. What language are you speaking? she asked. They were words almost unspoken in American living...

  • A Swift, Immediate Reaction

    By Avi Davis

    Watching the second tower of the World Trade Center crumble into dust on Tuesday, I was able to imagine the horror of the survivors of the Titanic as they witnessed their vessel sink into the Atlantic Ocean. A symbol of human progress and ingenuity, a monument to economic strength...

  • Terror Strikes Home

    By Tom Tugend

    September 13, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    Four downed planes. Three landmark buildings, two towers leveled. One nation under attack.
