As the 20th anniversary of 9/11 approaches, the Daily News is preparing a special commemorative special section to honor those who lost their lives and share memories of that day.
Hearing the memories of that day are valuable to me personally because I don't remember 9/11. As a child, my first memories associated with it are of overhearing adults talk about 9/11 gravely. Talking about how they remembered exactly where they were when they found out that a plane had flown into the World Trade Center. Hearing these stories is a great way to honor those who were victims of this tragic event and inform the younger generations of how it impacted the world we live in.
I remember doing research and reading the stories of the people who lost their lives that day, emergency responders, pilots, parents, sons and daughters. The stories were both inspiring and tragic. Hearing the stories of those who do remember helps me better understand the impact this horrific event had on the United States and the world.
Would you share your memories of 9/11 to help honor those who lost their lives that day?
