In today’s Record-Eagle, residents from around the region share their 9/11 experiences. We’d like you to share yours, too, by leaving a comment in this History Crossroads blog.
We will all remember where we were and what we were doing on that day. From the mundane (I was making sauerkraut) to the dramatic (a friend was evacuating his Manhattan apartment building with his days-old baby strapped to his chest), these stories paint a portrait of a nation in singular moment of shared tragedy.
Whatever it was you were doing on that day in September 2001, let us know by leaving a comment below. What were your first thoughts? The reactions of the people around you? How did the tragedy of 9/11 affect your life immediately after, and how does it affect you still today?
