Providence, RI – Nine-eleven. September 11, 2001 . . . phrases that now are permanently seared in our collective awareness, sounds that are likely to echo forever in our nation s memory. Many of us agonized about 9-11 from a safe distance as we watched horrifying video images and clung to television and radio announcers' graphic and gripping narration. For others, including Cara Murray, 9-11 was deeply personal, especially when it happened in one's own neighborhood. Murray has carried 9-11 with her, even as she has relocated to Rhode Island from New York City.
Cara Murray is a graduate of Brown University and is pursuing a Master of Arts in Marine Affairs at the University of Rhode Island. She is a former dancer and an emerging writer.
