On Saturday, former President George W. Bush and his wife Laura honored the heroes of September 11th at the dedication of the Flight 93 National Memorial.

Shortly after, the Bush Center released a video in which the former President invited people to help commemorate the 10th anniversary of the attacks by contributing to a historical record for future generations (video follows with commentary):

“Ten years ago, the sun rose on a peaceful September morning. By the time it set, nearly three thousand people were gone – the most lives lost on American soil in a single day since the Battle of Antietam. But the courage of so many men and women who saved innocent lives that day will live with us forever.” – President George W. Bush

To commemorate the 10 year anniversary of 9/11, the George W. Bush Presidential Center is asking you to share your 9/11 story – how did 9/11 change your life; what does the 10 year anniversary mean to you? This collection of stories – your memories – will become a permanent part of the Bush Center and integrated into the online museum experience.

Those interested should visit the George W. Bush Presidential Center.
