"It is virtually impossible to not be moved by any image or document that pertains to 9/11. While sifting through countless photos—pausing, feeling, remembering at each flip of a page—I (surprisingly) found myself profoundly moved by a detail of an image: the burning smoke of the towers. The smoke became clouds, and the clouds became those whom we will never forget. This became the cover of our commemorative issue."
