CNN30: Remembering 9/11


Five days after 9/11, New York City iReporter Beth Alice took her camera downtown to document New York's grief. She developed the photos, put them in a box, and never looked at them again.


Until two months ago.


Alice shared her photos as part of the CNN30 project to commemorate CNN's 30th anniversary. She recently spoke to CNN Radio's Steve Kastenbaum about the days following 9/11, the photos she took and how that event changed her forever. The CNN Radio podcast is also available on iTunes.


Got memories or photos to share from 9/11 or one of the other 29 events on the CNN30 timeline? Your contributions could be incorporated into future CNN coverage.

Thank you both...  This was a tough assignment.  It was important to tell though.  Knowing you're not alone.

That's what our Country is all about.


After each tragedy we help each other.


We go there and take Pictures of it, even though she didn't look at them for almost 10 years.


And all comes together on CNN.


Thank You Beth Alice

Great photo...  It took me 9 years to "visit" ground zero.  I didn't really visit, I had to take the path train and change to the subway, walking past ground zero, I didn't even look!
