|Headline:||eyewitness and survivor of 9/11|
|Description:||We each have a story of where we were the morning of 9/11. Artie was working across from the World Trade Center. He has shared his experience of that morning on stage in his play, “That Day In September”, and in his memoir of the same name.|
Artie's story now goes beyond just the day that changed our country, our world, and his life as he knew it. His is a story that is still evolving. It is about learning to live alongside the memories and images of trauma; something that reaches beyond just the survivors of 9/11; touching anyone who has experienced their own traumatic event.
His story encompasses grieving and mourning; which, he's learned, is different for everyone. It is about the effects of PTSD on a person's life and the challenge of allowing one's self to live life; experiencing it in place of just enduring it. It is not about forgetting; but about moving forward . . . one step as a time.
