Albany, NY – The tenth anniversary of the 9-11 attacks marks a traumatic day for the United States - the day when the conflict in the Middle East came to American soil and changed the way we viewed ourselves forever. Ceremonies will be held at the sites of those attacks, and the largest and most watched event will be at Ground Zero - the former site of the World Trade Center towers in Manhattan. Julia Indichova and the members of the Turn It Around project will be part of the crowd, inviting passersby to sing, to remember, and to talk. Ten years ago, she was in a subway when the towers fell.

For people directly affected by the 9-11 attacks, this year marks the anniversary of the day their lives changed forever. But we were all affected in some way by those attacks. And the emotional fallout from that day gives us an understanding of the problems faced by veterans of war. Today, in her Alive and Kicking feature, Dr. Sharon Ufberg speaks with a woman whose reaction changed the direction of her life.
