9/11: Stories In Fragments
1 x 60'
Four aeroplanes. Nearly three-thousand victims. An unimaginable tragedy. The terrible events of 11th September 2001 will never be forgotten.
But how do you grasp an event as enormous as 9/11? At the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History, they start small: a briefcase, a Blackberry, a victim's sweatshirt, and a hero's nametag. Simple objects that tell personal stories, recounted in the donors' own words. Stories from New York, the Pentagon and Shanksville, PA remind us that the legacy of 9/11 is not fear, it's friendship, courage, and ordinary people pushed by extraordinary circumstances. Their stories deserve to be remembered across decades and generations. By telling them, we triumph over tragedy.
