We mark this five year anniversary in many different ways, some with community memorials, others with a moment of silence. In Darien, a brief ceremony will be held at 8:30 a.m. at the September 11th Monument, on the rear lawn behind Middlesex Middle School.
For many of us, the memory and the impact of the day is still so fresh, it's hard to imagine that five years have passed. This week, we honor those we have lost and all that has happened since. 102 Minutes is now on the High School summer reading list, in the last five years the Library has acquired over 150 books and other materials related to the attacks, and Wendy Wasserstein and Jay McInerney, among others, have written novels fictionalizing the events of that day.
September 11, we remember.
