Remembering Sept. 11

August 25, 2011 

What do you remember most about the day the towers fell? It's been nearly 10 years since the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. Special tributes are planned throughout the county and nationwide. How will you remember that day? What have you learned -- about yourself, the country, the world -- in the past decade?

We want you to share what stands out most to you about Sept. 11. We'll run a selection of submissions and photos in the paper, and we'll put the rest online. Send your submissions by Sept. 5 to or; or send them to Features Department, The Beaufort Gazette, P.O. Box 5727, Hilton Head Island, SC 29938; or hand-delivered to 1809 Boundary St., Beaufort, or to 10 Buck Island Road, Bluffton. Be sure to include your name, where you're from and contact information.

The Island Packet is pleased to provide this opportunity to share information, experiences and observations about what's in the news. Some of the comments may be reprinted elsewhere in the site or in the newspaper. We encourage lively, open debate on the issues of the day, and ask that you refrain from profanity, hate speech, personal comments and remarks that are off point. Thank you for taking the time to offer your thoughts.
