Publisher's Summary. We all have our stories to tell of where we were the morning of September 11, 2001. This is one of them. In "That Day In September" Artie Van Why gives an eyewitness account of that fateful morning. From the moment he heard "a loud boom" in his office across from the World Trade Center, to stepping out onto the street, Artie vividly transports the reader back to the day that changed our lives and our country forever. "That Day In September" takes you beyond the events of that morning. By sharing his thoughts, fears and hopes, Artie expresses what it was like to be in New York City in the weeks and months following. The reader comes away from "That Day In September" with not only a more intimate understanding of the events of that day but also with a personal glimpse of how one person's life was dramatically changed forever.
Review. Today is a day of remembering, reflection and mourning, for all who were lost and for the survivors who witnessed events that no one should ever see.
In That Day in September author Artie Van Why, who worked across the street from the World Trade Center, shares his personal eye witness account of that horrific day. From the initial puzzling moments after the first plane crash to watching victims leaping to their deaths to assisting a likely mortally injured man in the street, Van Why sees and describes events that are eerily familiar to anyone who was there or watched the events unfold on the news.
That Day in September cannot be described as an enjoyable or an entertaining read, but it is an important story. One that should be read and not only on memorable anniversaries like today, but on future days too.
September 11th is a story that we as Americans must never forget, today and everyday.
