Learn about the World Trade Center through sounds, interviews, personal story audios, and pictures. While there is a focus on the events and aftermath of September 11, 2001, many of the stories speak about life in and around the World Trade Center throughout its history. There are stories from people who built the complex, from some who got married there, recordings of ambient sounds like the elevators and the wind, and, of course, stories of those who were involved in the tragic events of 9/11. As you listen, you will hear voices of joy, sorrow, courage, self-sacrifice, and hope. The project continues to gather and produce recordings of people’s memories of the great buildings.
Tribute site for posting ideas, in writing, with pictures, or with videos, of ways to observe the anniversary of the September 11 attacks. Intended to spur students, classes, schools, and the community at large to embrace a spirit of service, 9/11 Day asks everyone to make a public promise to do something meaningful in honor of the day. Search for and find charities and causes that need volunteers or page through the posted tributes and adopt one as your own.
At 9/11 Day, get everything you need, plus a good deal more, to inspire your students to do something good in tribute to the September 11th victims, survivors, and first-responders.
