I recently interviewed the parishioner, the pastor and the photographer -- three people who I met on the morning of September 11, 2001.

The interviews felt like mini-reunions; somber, but somewhat joyful, as we recalled a chilling and disorienting morning for all of us and what has happened to our country in the two decades since.
