Over the course of the morning I've been engaging with colleagues and students about their memories of Sept. 11th, 2001. The most shocking revelation was when speaking with one of my student staff, she said she was in 6th grade 8 years ago! I was a college sophomore at the time... boy, do I feel old now!
Anyway, in doing so, I've found it therapeutic, and from a history buff standpoint, quite fascinating hearing stories of a shared, collective experience such as this.
I remember the day vividly, and I'd like to share my experience as I remember it
I think keeping the dialogue about what we remember is important, and quite honestly, fascinating. Feel free to leave comments about your memories.
