Back in December 2014, I wrote about StoryCorps’ animated oral histories. I’ve long been a fan of theirs, so when I started thinking about how to best acknowledge this year’s 9/11 anniversary, they came to mind. It turns out my instinct was a good one.
I wasn’t able to get through all of their 9/11 recordings, but of the ones I got through before the tissues ran out, these really stood out. I hope you enjoy them. Maybe enjoy is the wrong word. I hope you appreciate them. And if you’re having a “Beaches” kind of day, there are many, many more on their website.
“Since 2005, StoryCorps and the National September 11 Memorial & Museum have worked to record at least one story to honor each life lost in the attacks on September 11, 2001 and February 26, 1993.” – StoryCorps 9/11 Initiative
That’s enough of that. Now mop up and watch this little bit of (sort of) New York love until you feel better.
