The 9/11/2001 terrorist attacks seared themselves into America's collective memory. Whether someone lived near one of the target sites or thousands of miles away, they were affected, though differently.
This anthology captures the September 11th experiences of New Mexico writers. Some witnessed the event. Some were still in school, or out of the country. All of them now live in The Land of Enchantment, the state snuggled between Texas and Arizona.
The talented contributors to New Mexico Remembers 9/11 offer enlightening, sometimes heart-wrenching prose, thoughtful analysis, and evocative poetry. What did they see? Do? How have they coped? What did they tell their children? How did they get home? Who got angry? Who retreated into themselves?
As we approach the twentieth anniversary of the attacks, readers of these stories and poems will understand New Mexico may have been physically far from the devastation, but its heart was just next door.
