>Where Were You on September 11, 2001?

>

This year marks the 10th year remembrance of the horrific day that changed our Nation and affected people around the World.

Most of us remember where we were and/or have an incredible account of what happened on September 11th, 2001!

You may or may not have personally known the innocent victims of the World Trade Center attacks on Twin Towers in NYC, or on the Pentagon in Arlington, VA, or in the field in Shanksville, PA.

Finding out what happened, most of us sat in dread, grieving for the victims, families, and friends of this terrorist act.

I can’t mention September 11th, without recognizing fallen first responders; those who died from diseases caused by pollutants caused by the disasters; and our military and civilians who have fought for the War on Terror and died for our Country.

New Bern Now wants to help share extraordinary stories experienced by local residents. We are working on a video and article to share with National media outlets to make sure those who lost their lives on 9/11/2001, did not die in vain.

Please give us a call at 252-638-6858 or send us an email if you would like to contribute your story with us no later than July 15, 2011.

Thank you,
Wendy Card

About New Bern Now
Editor-in-Chief, Wendy Card, founded New Bern Now in April 2009. There were a number of reasons she developed the website. While stationed in Washington DC, she had 30 days to transfer to Naval Hospital Cherry Point and didn’t know much about the area. She was frustrated because there wasn’t a central location on the Internet for information about New Bern. Wendy retired from the Navy in Oct 2007. When our economy dived, she was trying to find her way in life and decided to give back to the community by creating a website that provided a “One Stop, Information Shop” to help people find out what’s happening in our community along with creating a free business listing to help business owners who couldn’t afford to advertise.
