Library of Congress Requests Sept. 11 Stories

Posted January 2, 2004 at 2:09pm

As part of its September 11 Digital Archive Project, the Library of Congress recently launched “Contribute Your Story,” an interactive Web site that allows visitors to share their recollections of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

Participating individuals are asked to answer three questions:

1. Where were you on Sept. 11, 2001, when you heard the news?

2. What is your strongest memory of that day?

3. How do you perceive that the events of Sept. 11, 2001, have affected this country and/or you personally?

Visitors to the site can also submit personal stories, recollections, artwork or e-mail related to the ongoing effects of that day both on their lives and the nation as a whole. To participate, go to www.loc.gov/exhibits/911.
