"How has your life changed because of what happened on September 11, 2001?"

Help the Smithsonian document this historic event by sharing your September 11 experience with us. We’re interested in everyone’s experience, no matter where you were or how directly you were involved.

Your story will be permanently archived in the September 11 Digital Archive, a project of the Center for History and New Media at George Mason University and the American Social History Project at the City University of New York Graduate Center. The Archive is a partner with the Smithsonian in the National Museum of American History's commemorative exhibition "September 11: Bearing Witness to History," which was on view at the Museum from September 11, 2002 to July 6, 2003.

Over 1 million visitors saw the exhibition September 11: Bearing Witness to History at the National Museum of American History. At the end of the exhibit, visitors were asked to tell their story of September 11, 2001 and to consider how their lives had changed because of that day. Browse and search the thousands of stories left by these vistors. "
