9/11 through the newspapers' front pages

On a bright, blue morning nine years ago, 19 terrorists thrust the United States over an invisible line: There was the day before and there was the day after. Nearly a decade has passed since Sept. 11, 2001, and still the building at Ground Zero has yet to rise. The war on terrorism has yet to end. The president still speaks out against anti-Muslim tensions. Look back over a collection of the front page newspapers from around the world, and the first week of The Washington Post as our country grappled with the post-9/11 world.

Anyone old enough to remember the assassination of President John F. Kennedy could tell you exactly where they were when they heard the news. The terrorist attacks of Sept. 11 left a similar impression in the minds of many Americans.
