Tell us your memories of 9-11

The Community Newspaper Group is asking its readers to share their stories of Sept. 11, 2001 — from the moments of heroism, to the moments of tragedy; from the personal to the universal.

Everyone who was alive to see it has a vivid memory of that day — and together, those insights will form a unique oral history of 9-11, and provide a glimpse of how far we have come since terrorists knocked down one of our city’s gleaming symbols.

We’ll collect your stories and pictures and publish them in our upcoming special issue, “Brooklyn Remembers 9-11,” which will be included in our editions of Sept. 8.

It’s an issue that you won’t want to miss, featuring special commemorative coverage, pictures and, of course, your insights.

“The goal here is to hear from our readers, who know better than any reporter how they felt on that day, and how they’re feeling now,” said Community Newspaper Group Editor Vince DiMiceli. “And by collecting all their stories, our readers can learn from each other, and perhaps get a new insight into the tragedy.”

So tell us where you were, what you were doing, and what you saw that fateful day, and let us know how it affected your life, and the lives of those you love.

Then, look for our special issue on Sept. 8, and together, we’ll Remember 9-11.
