World Trade Center Mementos

Someone recently asked me to send them snapshots of some of the things I saved from my volunteer experience down at the Trade Center. I thought I’d put them up here, too.


I saved a lot of children’s drawings. This is one of my favorites.


Crosses made from the steel of the World Trade Center, and a piece of glass
from the windows.


Hats and shirts and sweatshirts — getting dusty!


This is a box of all sorts of stuff, cards and letters and patches and CDs,
Christmas ornaments, etc. Some guy carved the “Stacy 9/11” for me.


This is a bag of letters from people I meant to write back. I still haven’t worked
up the emotional energy to do it. They come from children mostly, who will
be adults by the time I get to it, it looks like.
