20 Years On
This is my little tribute to the victims who perished in the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the twin towers, pentagon, and world trade center. In this blog I talked about my own experiences of seeing this unfold on TV. I was 16 years old, an Aussie child in Australia, and this event shock me to my core. I will never forget.

In 2019, we had bushfires and deadly smoke. In 2020, we have a virus. In my blog, I re-created a number of photos that were taken in 2019, and matched them with 2020. The stark differences are remarkable. This episode is also available as a blog post: https://amyalexcampbell.com/2020/12/31/a-year-on-from-flames-to-rain/
