Monologues from Stuyvesant High School

Tuesday, September 11, started off like any other day at Stuyvesant High School, located only a few blocks away from the World Trade Center. The semester was just beginning, and the students, faculty, and staff were ready to begin a new year.

But within a few hours on that Tuesday morning, they would all share an experience that transformed their lives.

Now, on the tenth anniversary of September 11th, we remember those who were lost and those who were forced to witness this tragedy. Here, in their own words, are the firsthand stories of a day we will never forget.

“The speakers reveal their emotions with a painful honesty that’s profound, and the startling immediacy of the words gives these pieces even more impact. An obvious choice for reader’s theater and for use across the curriculum; its deeply affecting contents will also make compelling personal-interest reading.” “This unique book rings with authenticity and resonates with power.” “The emotional rhythms of the volume take on a credible ebb and flow. A number of moving moments.”
