National anniversaries are very difficult to resist fo media outlets. These stories are evergreen, but in documenting the 10th anniversary of those horrific Sept. 11 attacks, there must be a fine line observed between commemoration and perceived exploitation. Mindful of this possible misinterpretation, City Island Images wishes to focus our special coverage of this anniversary on issues like how much our readers can share, and how such a solemn occasion should be viewed as a specially sensitive opportunity.

As we approach the tenth anniversary of 9/11, it is hard to believe an entire decade has passed, since some or our memories make it feel like it was just yesterday. For many of us who live in the Tri-State area, we have a personal recollection a very unique experience and an individual story to share.

In an effort to capture your story, which is really our stories and be able to share them with many generations to come, CITY ISLAND IMAGES is asking that you share your thoughts, feelings and personal memories of September 11, 2001, as well as the weeks and months that followed this experience.

Thank you for your time and for your personal consideration.
