On the morning of Tuesday, September 11, 2001, a terrorist attack took place in the United States involving 4 hijacked planes, which resulted in approximately 3,000 deaths. Two airplanes struck the World Trade Center in New York City around 9:00 a.m., which caused the collapse of that building. In Washington, the third hijacked airplane crashed into the Pentagon at 9:43 a.m. The fourth airplane crashed in a field, at 10:10 a.m. in Somerset County, Pennsylvania.
In response to this tragedy, Kent State University placed two, 4-inch, 3 ring binders in the Risman Plaza, outside the Student Center, to provide a public place for members of the Kent State University community to write down, remember, and process their reactions to the events. Each page has the Kent State University logo on top, and below that reads: As a community, we remember... The remainder of each page contains the indivual entries participants wrote down.
