What is the 9/11 Project?

September 11 2021 will mark the 20th anniversary of the fateful day that altered the trajectory of American history, and the world. Anyone alive on that day will have either a memory or a story to share about how this day, these events, impacted them.

It is the Kennedy assassination for Generation X.

(and a pivotal moment in history for other generations as well)

This project is ambitious, especially for one woman (in this case, me). My aim to collect some stories about people’s memories and experiences of that day. I am looking to get a broad range of accounts – but I acknowledge these will probably be Westernized accounts. You don’t have to be a survivor or first responder – but if you are, I would love to hear from you.

Perhaps that day formed one of your earliest memories. Perhaps you were a child at school. Maybe it started off (as it did for so many) as just another Tuesday at work. Don’t think your memory is too mundane or too boring. It would be great to have a variety of voices, ages, experiences. If you have a memory from that day, or you know someone who wants to share their story or experience, please send me an email.

As with everything that has been impacted by COVID19, there are at the moment no upcoming classes or events for Full Stop. But boy, will we have plenty to write about when all of this finishes…Stay safe everyone.

My heartfelt thanks and appreciation to all of our current everyday heroes: our farmers, truckies, grocers, pharmacists, first responders, teachers, carers, politicians, and of course, everyone in the medical profession. You are truly making the world go around right now.
