Two New York City 9/11 stories
Episode 116, Sep 09, 2022, 07:00 AM
This is a special 9/11 episode. Siobhan and Jeanette each talk about the unique experience of being in New York City on September 11, 2001.
This weekend will mark the 21st anniversary of the terrorist attacks that happened on September 11, 2001.
We all remember where we were when we first started to hear what was happening. It was such a big and horrible thing, the memory sticks with us. That might be why it seems like it wasn’t really that long ago.
But think about it like this. A new baby that was born that year, is now a senior in college. There’s a whole generation who didn’t experience 9/11 in real time. They only know what they see on old news reports, or online articles, or documentaries.
A big way we keep that memory alive is by hearing from people who were there – in New York City, or at the Pentagon, or in Shanksville, Pennsylvania.
So, for the past few years on this podcast, around September 11, we’ve set aside a special episode to hear those stories. That’s what we’re doing today.
You’re about to hear two ladies talk about what they experienced, and how they dealt with it.
First is Siobhan. She was just 18 years old at the time. She has a YouTube channel, which I’ll link to in the show notes, and she told this story 10 years after it happened.
The second story is from Jeanette. Her office was on the 16th floor, directly across the street from One World Trade. She told her story just last year, in 2021.
At the end, I’ll have some important information about the 9/11 Tribute Museum, and a few other announcements.
