In this week’s editor’s letter, TIME managing editor Rick Stengel reflects on his own 9/11 experience:
“On that morning 10 years ago, I was sitting in Time’s office in New York when I first heard news reports of the plane crashing into the World Trade Center. I was then the editor of Time.com. I wrote the first news story of the grim events of that day and later went to the roof of the Time & Life Building to see the smoke rising from the southern tip of Manhattan. This issue is a fitting memorial to what we have all lived through and what we all remember.”
In the video above, you can watch him introduce our “Beyond 9/11” project, a reflection of the American resilience that lives on 10 years later.
