Remembering 9/11
Remembering 9/11: Terror, Trauma and Social Theory | V. Seidler
7 posts
Remembering 9/11 recalls the afterlife of the tragedy and the shock that led many to ask 'why do they hate us so much?' Engaging with the different voices that attempted to make sense of the trauma, Seidler traces the narratives of fear, loss and vulnerability and the ways in which they evolved into feelings of rage and retribution.

Today is a weird day for me. September 11 was my mom‘s birthday long before those fuckers flew planes into buildings (one of which I could see burning from my office across the river). Now she‘s gone and I‘m still here. It‘s like a regular day, but it really isn‘t. I‘m okay-just kind of want this day to be over.

Seeing I probably will not be on social media tomorrow seeing I will be traveling to NYC to visit the towers site. I lost my second mom when her plane crashed into the first tower. So me and my best friend and her kids will be going to put flowers at the site. #neverforget9/11/2001

I was a freshman in HS, almost 15, on 9/11/01. The eerie silence in the air is one of the things I remember most about 9/11 and the following day. My parents house is about 7 miles east of Chicago‘s O‘Hare airport flanked by two arrival flight paths. One can easily see/hear 10 planes go by in as many minutes at peak times. To this day I can remember how eerie the silence was and coming to the realization that things had forever changed.

‘No Day shall erase you from the memory of time‘
From my visit to the 9/11 Memorial and Museum last year.
I am not American and I was only 3 when it happened, but visiting the Museum was very moving and educational. May all the victims, in the planes, the towers, from the resulting wars, Rest In Peace.

jerra I was 8 when it happened. I was in school and didn‘t really know what was going on. Ny mom worked there so she kept us with her while everyone was pulling out their kids. My dad worked for Hoboken and actually saw the whole thing happen. He then had to help clean. I was never allowed to watch anything about it. But now he‘s passed and I‘m an adult, my first time to the memorial was much like yours. #neverforget 1y

Started to listen to the soundtrack from the Broadway show Come From Away on way home from work. Based on true events of 38 planes forced to land in Newfoundland on 9/11. I was crying in my car. I was not prepared for the emotions and the memories that this musical dredged up. I had friends in NYC & trapped away from home when all planes grounded. I want to see musical even more now but I'll be sure to bring tissues!

xicanti My parents are seeing this in a few months! 3y
Irisheyz77 @xicanti I still really want to see it as there is dialogue not captured in soundtrack. But wow that first listen just brought me right back to that day. The fear and the worry for friends and family flying and in NYC. Can't imagine what it was like for those on places outside US who had no idea what was happening as they forced to land 3y

I was not here 15 years ago, and so I am reticent to talk about my own feelings about this day. It's not my place. But this is one of the clearest nights in years, and you can see the Tribute in Light from outside our apartment. It hits you, sometimes, a little or all at once. Anyway, wanted to share. (sorry for the repost.)

Awk_Word_Smith 15 years ago, I was a journalist in the South. I, too, now live in Manhattan. I, too, have a different connection to this tragedy. I, too, said nothing on social media yesterday. But I do appreciate this beautiful city. 3y
