[ARCHIVED] watch 9-11 stories on public access TV--local residents experiences dealing with this tragic day

The 9-11 stories is part of our living history initiative. We must never forget the tragedy that took place on this horrible day

It's been 22 years since 9-11. None of the students who are currently enrolled in any public or private school in Greenburgh was alive on 9-11. And most college students and recent college graduates were also not alive. To encourage those who were not alive to have a better appreciation of this tragic day the town is broadcasting 9-11 stories on September 11th -all day on Optimum channel 76 and Verizon channel 3 Twenty one Living history stories of Greenburgh residents whose lives were impacted by the tragic happenings on 9/11. In recent eyars  a 9/11 committee has been interviewing residents who were at ground zero on the morning of September 11, 2001 or whose lives were impacted by the horrors of that day. On September 11 19 militants associated with the Islamic extremist group Al Qaeda hijacked four airplanes and carried out suicide attacks against targets in the United States. Two of the planes were flown into the twin towers of the World Trade Center in NYC.

 All the interviews are on the Greenburgh website, here is the direct link to the 9/11 Greenburgh Stories videos - http://greenburghpublicaccess.com/9-11-greenburgh-stories/?page=1

 We started the 9-11 living history project because we want to make sure that future generations won't forget what happened on this tragic day and will also be able to hear the personal stories of Greenburgh residents who will never forget that day. In addition to the 9-11 Greenburgh stories the town has interviewed about 150 Greenburgh veterans of World War II and the Korean conflict. Those interviews are aired on public access TV every Memorial Day and Veterans day.  We must never forget! 

 

If you would like to be included in a future interview about 9-11 please e mail me at pfeiner@greenburghny.com. The 9-11 Greenburgh stories is a continuing effort.
