In this compelling autobiography, the author shares her account of 9/11 and the days that followed. Before going to sleep each evening, she furiously documented the chaos and humanity that surrounded her and New York City. Not wanting to forget anything, she detailed the long days wandering the island, volunteering at the Armory, and circumnavigating Ground Zero. Then she stuffed the story away for 20 years, too raw to read it. In 2021, she finally unearthed the manuscript and shared her story.
What follows is a personal documentary of a city in crisis after the September 11, 2001, attack on the World Trade Center. Written by a born and bred New Yorker, "I still carry you around" is raw, powerful, and unforgettable. She breaks down her account of 9/11 and the days that followed by offering an in-depth exploration of life during one of America's most painful weeks. Here's how she spent her week:
• 9/11: Making my way downtown
• 9/12: Gotham in limbo
• 9/13: Mobilization at the Armory
• 9/14: Armory, second shift
• 9/15: Armory, final day
• 9/16: Suburban refugees
• 9/17: Business, not as usual
• 9/18: Approaching Ground Zero
• The Aftermath
A true American tragedy and a moment like no other, the healing process continues. Within these pages, the author opens her heart to share a real and honest account of a time that we will never forget
