When The Day asked readers to share their memories of Sept. 11, 2001, people from throughout the region took the time to write of their experiences. A few even thanked us for asking, explaining that they’d meant to write about the day, but had never gotten around to it.
We could publish only excerpts of a few responses in our special section, published Sept. 11, 2011. Here are all contributors' full responses.
Thanks to all for taking part in this community project.
The Day interviewed dozens of family members, some of them on video, to produce this Special Report that tells the stories of the men and women with ties to Connecticut who have died in Afghanistan and Iraq.
