Remembering 9/11 on September 11, 2012

911 aftermath

For most of us here in the United States, today we’ll be surrounded with news and other media marking the 11th anniversary of September 11, 2001.

Many genealogy bloggers will also choose to remember the events of that day with a post on their blogs.  9/11 was one of those important historic events which your children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren will ask about one day.  If you haven’t already done so, take a few moments to record how you recall that day.

We’ll carry links to the posts from GeneaBloggers blog members here:

  1. Yes, it’s important to remember what happened in NY that day. However, please remember some of us who, until 2001, thought of this day in a joyful way: births and anniversaries, as well as special other events with special memories. Often I think we are forgotten.

  2. I was getting ready for work on the west coast and had the radio on. The dj said “if you are near a tv go turn it on.” My heart stop for a moment watching the fire fighters and other first responders going towards the building. My husband was a Fire Captain at the time and I new this would change his life at work and at home. It changed my life because reality told me that this could be him if it happened on the west coast. I was the CEO of a company so I called an all staff meeting to try to keep the employees informed and from breaking down during the day. We were 3000 miles away but felt all the pain, just not the physical part, of those in NYC.
