Do you remember where you were 20 years ago on 9/11? How did you feel then? How do you feel now? Have your beliefs about patriotism, nationalism, race and religion evolved since then?
Do you remember the first time you ever heard the words “I love you?” Or how about the last time you felt truly safe? Do you remember the best meal you’ve ever eaten or a really funny, heartwarming moment from your childhood?
Our life experiences are made up of memories, some major and world-shaking, some seemingly insignificant yet still impactful. Write an essay finishing the following sentence: “I remember…” and share your impactful, life-changing memories with us. Tag your story “ZORAFall21” for an opportunity to have your work shared in ZORA.
