Commemorating twenty years since the 9/11 attacks, With Their Eyes is a deeply moving play, written by high school students who witnessed the tragedy unfold, remembers September 11, 2001. This edition features an introduction from Annie Thoms, and a foreword from New York Times bestselling author David Levithan.
Tuesday, September 11, started off like any other day at Stuyvesant High School, located only a few blocks away from the World Trade Center.
The semester was just beginning, and the students, faculty, and staff were ready to start a new year. But within a few hours on that Tuesday morning, they would share an experience that would transform their lives—and the lives of all Americans.
This powerful play, written by students of Stuyvesant High School based on their interviews with the school community, remembers those who were lost and those who were forced to witness this tragedy. Here, in their own words, are the firsthand stories of a day we will never forget.
