What are your 9/11 memories?

September 7, 2011

We are approaching the 10th anniversary of Sept. 11, 2011 terrorists attacks. Our issue tomorrow is devoted to that.

On that morning, I was in a sales staff meeting when managing editor Alice Crain Good came rushing into the conference room shouting that a plane had crashed into one of the World Trade Center towers. We huddled around the TV in time to see a second airliner strike the other tower. Then the towers fell.

We completely scrapped our issue and started over. Joe Scarborough, now of “Morning Joe” fame, had one of his more brilliant moments. We sent the staff out to interview people all over town. Our cover was all black with the words: “We Will Never Be The Same”.

Joe was right. We have never been the same. For the 10th anniversary of that fateful day, we asked friends to share their memories of 9/11 and what they have learned from it.

We would like to hear your memories and thoughts on this tragedy, too. You can email them to us at or post them as a comment to this post. If you want to remain anonymous, it’s okay, but follow the rules of the comments.

Please share your thoughts and memories.
