About Jill Cueni-Cohen and Like It Was Yesterday

Where were YOU on 9/11?
Jill’s first book, Like It Was Yesterday – A Journalist’s Files Since 9/11, launched on 9/10/2015 and was written to remind everyone, especially teens and future generations, about the way 9/11 has changed our society.
“Like It Was Yesterday” is a compilation of unpublished and re-edited published material about the effects of 9/11 since the attack took place. It’s a reminder for those of us who were adults in 2001; and for everyone else, it’s a real-life account of how America’s freedom has been eroded since then.
I’m a journalist by trade: Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, HREOnline.com (Human Resource Executive Magazine), and North Hills Monthly Magazine to name a few.
I have written several books, but this is the first one I’ve published. Embarking on my 50th year of life, I find that I am now ready to share my many works with the rest of the world.
As the fifteenth anniversary of 9/11 approaches, I suddenly grasp the importance of teaching those who don’t or can’t remember to REMEMBER. People born right before, during and after 9-11-2001 were robbed of the freedom we used to take for granted. It was hard-fought for by our fathers, grandfathers and great-grandfathers, but by the time we reached the 21st Century, we believed we had evolved above brutal war and senseless killing. On 9/11, we found out that we were indeed still vulnerable, and it changed us.

  1. Jill, I am so happy to see someone writing about this time in our recent history. It is an incredibly important day we need to never forget. As a very patriotic American, I feel as though time and life takes us away from things we should stop to appreciate, the little things. Because, in an instant it can all be taken from us. The men and women who sacrificed so much on this horrific day in history should always be remembered. And, future generations should realize the significance of patriotism and the effects this day had on all of us. Thank you for your work and capturing what this meant to those of us whose lives were forever changed on 9/11.
