Some Devastating Marks Bin Laden Left Behind / by Maria Hinojosa | May 6, 2011


The news of Osama bin Laden’s death swept the nation and caused a wide array of reaction from Americans – from celebrations in the streets, to a quiet reflection about the pain felt on 9/11. It also reminded us of the unity we once felt as Americans, having shared in a national tragedy. But not all who suffered and lost loved ones that day were “Americans.” Lourdes lost a husband, a father to her children, and the family a little bit of themselves. In the past decade, they often felt unwanted in this country.

Maria Hinojosa sits down to talk about life after Sept. 11, 2001 – how they’ve changed and what they feel today as the person responsible for that change has been killed.
