There are moments we all share—nearly unimaginable in their grand impact, and profound in their personal effect. Sept. 11, 2001 was undeniably such a time.
Patch—working in collaboration with the Huffington Post and the Action America project—has collected hundreds of stories about the ways the terrorist attacks of 9/11 affected the lives of people in the communities we serve.
A small handful of those stories—focusing on residents of Morris, Somerset and Sussex Counties, but including more than two dozen others from throughout New Jersey—are told here through photographs. Starting Sunday morning, hundreds more are at the Huffington Post.
If you'd like to share your own story about how 9/11 affected you, e-mail Louis@Patch.com (if you've got a related photo, please include that as well, in its original, unedited form). We'll post it here or elsewhere on the site as the 10-year anniversary of the attacks approaches.
