Publisher’s memo: The Mirror seeking thoughts about 9-11

August 21, 2002

In just three weeks, our nation will mark the one-year anniversary of the destruction of the World Trade Center.

As we approach this somber anniversary, we here at The Mirror would like to hear from you, our readers. Clearly, each of our lives was changed that day. And we think it would be beneficial for our readers to have the opportunity to tells us how their lives have changed.

In the Sept. 11, 2002, edition of The Mirror, we will print some of your thoughts on our news and editorial pages.

Some of us have struggled during the past year. Some of us have found strength through our religion. Some of us have turned to friends and family to help us through our hours of darkness. And many of us have found renewed connection with our country, with what it means to be a citizen of the United States of America.

And so many of us have stories to tell and thoughts to share.

Whether you're young or old or somewhere comfortably in between we'd like to hear from you.

Please write your thoughts and mail them, e-mail them or drop them by our offices. Here are the addresses to help you out:

The Mirror, P.O. Box 920, 520 E. Fourth, Tonganoxie, 66086.

E-mail: mirror@tonganoxiemirror.com.

Please mark your envelope or message as "Sept. 11" and include your name, address and telephone number. We won't print your address and phone number, but we'll need them, just in case we need to get in touch with you.

We're eager to hear from you, and we appreciate your willingness to share your thoughts and feelings with us.
