BROOKLYN - A woman from Bedford-Stuyvesant has spent the past decade chronicling the history of Sept. 11 and its aftermath, culminating in the Sunday night announcement of Osama bin Laden's demise.Dorothy Hurd has collected more than 50 newspapers on the topic, neatly wrapped in plastic and stacked in bookcases to make sure they stay intact. Hurd says she has been hoping for bin Laden's death since she first started her collection."I just wanted to hold these papers, knowing that one day he would be captured," she says.Hurd plans to pass the newspapers onto her great-grandchildren so they can learn about what happened in the days and years after the terrorist attacks.
