Bush Presidential Center Seeks 9/11 Memories
DALLAS (AP) – The George W. Bush Presidential Center in Dallas has announced a call for 9/11 stories as a unique online reminder of the deadly terrorist attacks.
The center, on its website Monday, invited visitors to share a captioned photo, an essay of 250 words or less or a video with inspirational narratives.
A center spokeswoman said Monday afternoon that more than 1,300 recollections have been submitted since the call went out Saturday.
Bush, in a statement marking the 10th anniversary of the terrorist attacks, says the collection of memories shared online will be a permanent part of his center. The information will be integrated into what the site calls the “online museum experience.”
Bush was president when the terrorist attacks happened on Sept. 11, 2001. He and his wife, Laura, both took part in weekend commemorative events of the tragedy.
The Bushes live in Dallas.
