9/11: Where were you?

Sunday marks the tenth anniversary of the terrorist attacks that changed the United States forever. The repercussions of the four coordinated suicide attacks on September 11 2001 were felt around the world.

We want to know your memories of that moment, when hijackers intentionally crashed two planes into the Twin Towers of the World Trade Centre in New York City, and a third plane into the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia. The iconic images of the towers falling have become part of our collective memory, as has the experience of our world re-ordering in the wakes of the attack, where nearly 3 000 died.

Fill in the below form and tell us your story. We will choose a few of the best to carry on our site in the run up to the anniversary.

These are unprecedented times, and the role of media to tell and record the story of South Africa as it develops is more important than ever. But it comes at a cost. Advertisers are cancelling campaigns, and our live events have come to an abrupt halt. Our income has been slashed.

The Mail & Guardian is a proud news publisher with roots stretching back 35 years. We’ve survived thanks to the support of our readers, we will need you to help us get through this.
