Remembering 9/11

 

It's hard to believe that it has been nine years since the 9/11 terrorist attacks. I still remember the day so vividly.  I'm sure you also remember where you were and what you were doing. The attacks had a profound and lasting effect on all of us.

It is important to preserve our memories of 9/11, as painful as they may be. Otherwise, future generations may not understand the significance of the events.  The September 11 Digital Archive is dedicated to preserving the history of Sept. 11. You'll find firsthand stories and photos.

Once you've explored the collection, leave your story. You can upload images or documents. Or, simply state your recollections and how the day changed you.  You'll also want to visit the National September 11 Memorial and Museum. You'll find professional and amateur video footage and photographs.

The site also places photos alongside current Google Street View photos. Of course, there are also memorials to victims of the attacks.  It is easy to focus on the terrorists who carried out these attacks. And they are certainly worthy of our anger.

But, for most of us, it isn't so easy to put faces to the victims. Project 2,996 will change that. It has asked bloggers to help remember the victims.  Bloggers are creating tributes to those who lost their lives. You'll be able to learn more about the victims of 9/11.

Finally, memorialize those who lost their lives. Download Microsoft's 3-D American flag screen saver. It is easy to install and use. You may decide to make this free screen saver your default.

Many of these sites contain horrific images. You will be shocked and outraged all over again. Young children won't understand what they're seeing. So, make sure you view these sites with them.
