"When the first tower fell, it was as if, you know I have a window here, you couldn't see anything. It was like, I've never been in a volcanic explosion but that’s what it would seem to me like. The sun... I told you it was a brilliant day; you couldn't see the sun anymore." - Dean Lynn Byrne

Journals & Papers

Throughout the course sessions students were required to keep journal entries and to prepare a final paper based on the content of their interviews and their interview experiences.† These course materials are organized by class. For some students enrolled in HIS113P, course participation seemed to provide cathartic expression to pent-up feelings. This was especially true for those who had family and friends affected by 9/11, or, who had direct experience with the disaster themselves.† The journals and final paper presentations gave expression to thoughtful self-reflection and emotions aroused by the studentsí own memories and the experiences of their interviewees.
