Tomorrow is September 11, 2001...the 9th anniversary of the attacks in the United States. We all know this of course. It was a horrible day and I'll always remember exactly where I was, even though I was just 11 at the time. I'm sure a lot of you are planning on writing your own post about this day and I definitely encourage you too...even if it's just something short and simple. It doesn't matter. However, I will ask you to include one thing...a link and information about the book American Widow by Alissa Torres.
It's a graphic novel (someone else did the art) but Alissa wrote the story about losing her husband on 9/11. I know there are a few books from wives that lost their husbands...but this one is in a different format and something I believe that more people would be interested in reading. Think about picking up a copy, asking about it at the library, or ordering it online this weekend. Remember 9/11 through books. Honor those who were lost by reading a personal story. You can learn more about Alissa at her site here. Two of the things that really strike me about her particular story is A. she was pregnant with their son and B. her husband died on his second day of work for Cantor Fitzgerald.
I have a Mr. Linky below...if you write about 9/11 and include information about Alissa and her book, please leave a link. I'd love to stop by and read it, and will definitely leave a comment to as many blogs as I can. Spread the word. Remember with me.
