The Melon 9/11 Narratives
On September 11th, 2001, two airplanes hit the World Trade Center buildings in New York, a third plane hit the Pentagon and a fourth crashed in Pennsylvania killing a total of at least 2,974 people. Not since Pearl Harbor had America witnessed an attack on its soil, never before had it experienced such direct detrimental damage, and never would it be the same.
Over the next few days leading up to the seventh anniversary of 9/11, contributors from The Melon will be posting narratives recounting their experiences. We ask you to join us in remembering those who lost their lives, honoring the families and friends who lost loved ones and thanking those heroes who fell, and those who worked tirelessly, sacrificing their health to clear rubble and save lives.
