During the attack, 22 people died — 10 patients and 12 staff members.

Tuesday Sept. 11, 2001 was a bright and beautiful day. There wasn’t a cloud in the sky, until two planes barreled into the twin towers, killing thousands, filling lower Manhattan with smog and coating the streets in debris. The attacks of that fateful day plummeted the United States into a darkened state of hypersensitivity and fear that persists 14 years later. Acknowledging this, the motivation behind the arrest of 14-year-old Ahmed Mohamed become painstakingly apparent.
