Get your hankies ready for this one. To commemorate the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, StoryCorps will be sharing recordings and animated shorts of real 9/11 stories over the next few days. This one is called “Always a Family,” and as you might expect, it’s a tearjerker, and a sad reminder that for every life lost that day, countless relationships were affected.
StoryCorps aims to record one story for every life lost on 9/11. You can help them reach this goal by making a donation here. Your donation will go toward recording session costs, preserving and archiving interviews, buying CDs for the interviewees, and editing the stories for broadcast.
