"Now the challenge is to find the larger context that this all fits in..."
I think we are very close to meeting our goal of documenting the attack, the rescue efforts and the recovery operation on September, and immediately after September 11. Now the challenge is to find the larger context that this all fits in, and I'm sure that collecting will go on in a proactive way over the coming months and perhaps years because at this point we simply don't know the full context that this event fits into.
