Guam - What started as discussion on the 11th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 attacks prompted a class project for students at the University of Guam. According to UOG English and theatre instructor Tali Ariav, words can change the world and although her students were only 9 or 10 years old during the attacks, many had personal memories and political views to share.

She told KUAM News, "What we have now is a booklet of 2,977 lines and each line is dedicated to one person at least who died in the attack and that's a way to create a new memory a way to create a new rhetoric for a new generation to come."

Each of the 21 students and Ariav took on 136 lines. To view LineEleven in its entirety, visit www.UOG.Edu  or www.Facebook.com/universityofguam.
