Sept. 11: Share your reflections and tell us how you’ll serve


The tenth anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks is weeks away. We’re preparing special coverage that will begin a week prior to the anniversary and will include a special section that pays tribute to Lower Hudson Valley victims and their families. We do, however, want to hear from you.

As the 10th anniversary of that terrible Tuesday approaches, how are you feeling? What are you thinking? What will the day mean to you? Share your reflections and thoughts on our special Facebook page.

How will you serve?
A growing number of people pay tribute to those lost on 9/11 by rolling up their sleeves and volunteering on Sept. 11, designated as National Day of Service and Remembrance, and Patriot Day. ­

In 500 words or less, tell us why, where and how you plan to serve on the anniversary. If your service honors a particular person, tell us about that, too. Please email your submission to letters@lohud.com and include verification information (full name, address and daytime phone number).
