‘We were there.’ Newspapers remember 9/11

Often when I gather collections of front pages, I’m struck by the similarities. Today, it’s the variety of stories, themes and images that’s striking. There’s healing, education, memorials and war. The stories are told and shown in concrete and abstract ways. Some reflect the country, while others look into their communities. Here’s a collection of newspapers marking the 13th anniversary of September 11, 2001, courtesy Newseum. Newseum also has collections of 9/11 front pages from September 12, 2001, September 11, 2008, and September 11, 2011.
