During the final event for the Black Syracuse Project's "Your Story!" series, members of the Syracuse community spoke about their experiences with love in its many forms.

On a rare sunny Tuesday in downtown Syracuse, a group of strangers gathered in an auditorium above Beauchamp Library to share love stories. A row of chairs faced an empty stage, their voices echoing off the hardwood floor. An initiative by the Black Syracuse Project, “Your Story!” was a chance for community members to recall stories of past love, new love, lifelong love and even love of self.

Students, alumni and citizens give an oral history of their experience with 9/11, and how they have risen above fear.

This Sunday will mark the 10th anniversary of 9/11. Across the country, Americans will honor the date with memorial services, speeches, illuminated candles, and dozens upon dozens of magazine cover tributes.

The terrorist attacks 10 years ago cost Americans two wars, billions of dollars in defense spending, two presidencies marred by foreign policy and above all, challenged American citizens to live in fear for their lives.
