In online journal, SMU students share memories of 9/11 (Scoop Blog)

Bruce Tomasco, Dallas Morning News, Sept 2 2011

Today's college students were 10 or so when foreign terrorists struck on U.S. soil on Sept. 11, 2001.

That means they were old enough to have vivid memories of that day -- what they did, how they felt, what they saw on TV, what their parents and teachers told them.

At Southern Methodist University, students -- along with faculty, staff and alumni -- are invited to share their recollections of 9/11 on a web page maintained by the Cary M. Maguire Center for Ethics & Public Responsibility.

"The whole story cannot be told by any one person or from any single perspective," writes Robin W. Lovin, a professor of ethics. Our remembrance will be more complete as more of us make our own stories part of it."

Dozens of people have already placed entries on the site, a total that is sure to multiply as SMU moves forward next week with a variety of events coinciding with the 10th anniversary of the attacks.
