Most of the protesters, students and supporters of the Dream Act were freed Tuesday after their arrest on criminal trespassing charges for refusing to leave the offices of Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison.The 16 arrested protestors, including former City Councilwoman Maria Berriozabal and Methodist Minister Lorenza Andrade Smith, were demanding to speak to the senator and wanted her support for the DREAM Act.The act would give citizenship to immigrants brought to the country illegally when they were minors if they finished two years of college or military service.

It was the day when everything changed. The terrorist attacks on U.S. soil nine years ago on September 11 shocked the world and put America on the front lines of the war on terrorism.On this ninth anniversary, as the nation pauses in solemn remembrance, each of us will recall what we did that day, how we wept and grew angry and became a little less certain of the future. And, perhaps, look for a way to reconnect that day of tragedy to somehow making the world a little better.
