Barron’s Magazines are an ordinary magazine publisher, who publish a monthly magazine. They published their magazine as normal on September 14th, 2001.
You’re probably thinking that there is nothing remarkable about this. But consider that their offices had been demolished 3 days earlier on 11th September – their offices were next to the Twin Towers in New York.

Ed Finn and his team at Barron’s, were driven and motivated to get their work done, despite the adversity. The team were completely committed to getting their magazine published.
