September 11th Animated Shorts Series

With the 10th Anniversary of 9/11 coming up this Sunday, I wanted to find a video that honors the lives of those who were lost in the attacks. In my search, I discovered many well-made, thoughtful videos that pay tribute to September 11th, the World Trade Center and New York City, but I finally came across one project that I think is particularly well-done and has a unique purpose.

StoryCorps, an independent non-profit based in Brooklyn, New York, is creating “One story for every life lost on September 11th.” Their motto is that “every voice matters” and this specific project was created in order to honor the “lost voices” of 9/11. Using interviews conducted with family members and friends of the people who were killed in the attacks, StoryCorps has created a series of animated shorts that brings those individual stories to life.

Though the reason this particular project exists is truly tragic, it is a gracious opportunity to help others heal through storytelling – both for those who speak and for those who listen. I commend the storytellers for their courage in opening up their hearts to the rest of the world.
