Call for memories: Where were you Sept. 11?

Weekly's 'Sept. 11 Project' will present memories on tragedy's 10th anniversary

Palo Alto Online is collecting local residents' memories of Sept. 11, 2001, to be published online in commemoration of the 10th anniversary of the tragedy.

We're looking for your story from that day -- your recollections of hearing the news, of waiting for word from a loved one on the East Coast, of talking about the disaster with your family, friends and colleagues, or of attending a vigil or other gathering.

To share your memories, please email editor@paweekly.com with the subject line, "Sept. 11 Project." Or send a letter to Sept. 11 Project, Palo Alto Weekly, 450 Cambridge Ave., Palo Alto, CA 94306.

In addition to your recollection, please include your full name, with the name of your street and a contact phone number. The phone number will not be published, but we may contact you regarding your recollection.
