Remembering and Honoring Heros

11 Sep

It’s a beautiful Saturday here in DC, but nine years ago all of us spent this day in shock as the events of 9/11 unfolded. I was a freshman at the University of Georgia on my way to take a Stat test. The first reports of the attacks came across the bus’ radio, but I only had vague information before reaching my stop. I remember walking into my test terrified and unsure where my Dad was traveling to that day. It was all I could do to finish my test, rush back to my dorm, and call my Mom.

The September 11 Digital Archive collects, preserves, and shares the history of the 9/11 attacks and public responses to them. These types of collections are critical to remembering our history and keeping in mind those we have lost to protect our great nation.

Take a moment today to explore the collections online and reflect on the last nine years. Where were you?
