9/11. The day the World Trade Center got hit. The day they both collapsed. The day the pentagon got hit as well. The day thousands died and many injured. The day, in history, that will be remembered forever.
This book is about three people who experienced 9/11 at the moment. There is Claire who was in school. Jasper who as asleep through it all. And Peter, who ditched school to buy a CD. The story goes on as the characters start to figure out <i>What is the world to them now?</i> or <i>What will happen now?</i> All three have their own way of dealing with it, are all very realistic, flawed, and just full of emotion. The book has such raw emotions that many who can remember back can relate and maybe shed a tear of two.
It's said in the LOVE IS THE HIGHER LAW, that during that time and weeks after, people became kinder, realized more important, and related to a complete stranger. People who actually remembered that day would understand the feeling. But I don't know, I was only a few years old when it happened. So I remembered about when Japan had the massive earthquake and remembered how everyone was talking about it. My teacher was discussing about it. How people were calling to know if their friends, family, or acquaintances were okay. And how people sent money over to help in whatever way it could. How we all were just connected. Waiting to see if it was going to be alright.
Love is the higher law.
