Another call for your 9/11 experience

[There seem to be a lot of these out there by news organizations and seem like a good opportunity to show them how many of us are out there who don't buy the official story. You can write one response and then keep sending it out or posting it as a comment on all of the requests like this that you see. "Tumbling down" . . . heh, I guess they don't remember the details that well.]

Readers invited to contribute to 9-11 anniversary coverage

Where were you when Kennedy was shot, when the Neil Armstrong walked on the moon?

Where were you when the Twin Towers came tumbling down?

Some events are etched into the memory.

Others are seared.

The day that will forever and be known simply as “9-11” falls into the latter category. It is iconic, it was a watershed. The world was not the same after it happened. It will never be the same again.

As the 10th anniversary of that day approaches, the Morning News and are planning special coverage. We’d like our readers to be a part of that.

We hope you’ll read today’s story about the “iconic images” of 9-11 and let the memories float up. Where were you heard the news? What were your thoughts at the time? What are you thoughts today?

We don’t have any specific model for what we’re seeking. The 9-11 tragedy was the kind of visceral, gut-wrenching, once-in-a-lifetime event that evokes a wide range of responses. Send is one quick line. Send us 500-word essay. Send a poem. Photos that speak to the moment, or your reaction to same, are fine. Perhaps you have a special tie to that day.

We’ll sort through whatever we get and publish it on 9-11.

Here’s how you can get it to us:
