Customer Review

on October 1, 2002
This book was not easy to read. Even though it was difficult, I felt that I needed to listen to these people tell their stories. I'm not into sensationalism, gore, or the like. I have never seen Schindler's List or Saving Private Ryan -- it's too hard for me to know what to do with the information once I've been exposed. There's no place to file it in my mind and I'm afraid it will haunt me. 9/11 is different. I was nowhere near NY, but I think we all experienced a death that morning. I was compelled to read this book to somehow empathize with those who perished and those who survived. I was "safe" on the west coast, but I wanted to know what my fellow Americans went through that day. Beyond what I was being fed from the media, I needed to hear it from the people who were there so I could try to understand what they endured and what the continue to endure. I don't want to forget -- I want to remember.
