Lisa Noon ’12 was quoted on the Huffington Post in the article, “Students React To Bin Laden’s Death With Celebration, Reflection,” which appeared May 2.
Lisa Noon, a 20-year-old junior at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, was in sixth grade when the two planes first struck the twin towers.
She was home sick the morning of Sept. 11, 2001 and remembers waking up to her father screaming downstairs at the television. The two spent the day glued to the screen, unable to comprehend the horror that would unfold over the next few hours.
“I always thought I had a unique perspective,” said Noon. “All of my friends were in school and didn’t find out until after the fact. I actually saw it happening live.”
