Couple to marry on 9/11: "If we don't take back that day ... the terrorists win"

Another profile I wrote for Yahoo! News went live this week. This one is about a young couple getting married on the 10th anniversary of 9/11.

My favorite part of the interview was when the bride told me that, after a moment's hesitation about the date, they decided to go ahead with it anyway:

"But the more I thought about it," Briggs says, "I was like, 'You know what? If we don't take that day back at some point and start celebrating something else, the terrorists win.'

"We grieve that day every year. I'm honored to share that day with all of the people that lost their lives, the people on the planes, the people in the World Trade Center, and the military. Especially the military."
