Aug. 16, 2011 — As we approach the 10th anniversary of the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, we are reminded not only how resilient Americans are, but also how al Qaeda has opened our eyes to the realization that its objective is to destroy the United States.
That fateful day shook all Americans to their very core and just as older citizens can remember where they were when President John F. Kennedy was shot and how they felt when they heard the news, we can remember where we were and how we felt when the attack on America began. We can remember when the first plane hit the first Twin Tower in New York City, then the second. We remember how we felt when the Pentagon got hit and when the plane crashed in the Pennsylvania field.
What we want to know is what our readers remember.
Where were you when you first heard the news?
What was your reaction or feelings?
During the week of Sept. 6, we will be publishing your thoughts on the tragedy that changed America.
Please submit one or two sentences to the paper to Barbara France, Managing Editor, firstname.lastname@example.org or 100 Grand Ave., Susanville, CA., 96130 by noon on Tuesday, Aug. 30 to be included in our commemorative issue of the 10th anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001.
We will always remember!
