Given the events of September 11, 2001, and its subsequent ramifications on our lives, I have compiled a short list of important sites and articles on this event. I was in the middle of the Nevada wilderness, attending a library leadership retreat, when this happened. It was almost surreal having the retreat staff bring in a TV from the local town to watch the news stories in between sessions, given that we were totally isolated from both society and from technology during this week.
All of the links were active as of October 24, 2001, and I will state that I am not responsible for the validity or accuracy of the information presented in these websites. I hope that all of you are working through the aftermath of these events, and that these websites will assist in information-gathering and healing.
