Real people remember

Joe.My.God’s account of “That Day.”

Ian William’s memories of 9/11: “no one wept except the willow

3 Quarks Daily’s contributors all write about “Five Years Later.”

I’m so glad to read personal accounts because that was what struck me about the media coverage from that day — and for about a week or so after — the grand hype machine had stopped, and all we heard about were real people. No politicians, no celebrities, no pundits, just news anchors talking to and about real human beings living and dying in the real world. I’d much rather hear what New York residents have to say about September 11th than politicians who were in hiding, running like little girls away from the danger.

    Thanks for the extra links, Steph. I’d read Joe’s piece – and thought it was a damn good post. After reading what you said about the personal stories, I think you’re dead on target. That’s what’s been missing – the personal stories like Joe’s. I’ll go check out the others you recommend.
