Three 9/11 Stories To Share

It's the 10-year anniversary of 9/11 which means we're going to be seeing a lot of stories about what happened a decade ago and how we've been coping with it. Arrowheadlines has quite a few of them.

Here are a few I wanted to highlight as well:

The first is this video, Chiefs Kingdom, from the KCChiefs.com video crew. Take the 20 minutes and watch it -- now. It's well worth your time. It's pretty incredible to see people talk about what they went through -- like spending time in a burn unit -- and see the emotion on their faces. Seveal folks involved with the Chiefs are shown, including former coach Dick Vermeil and Mitch Holthus. It's the story of Lt. Col. Brian Birdwell and others that 9/11 affected that you'll want to see. Very powerful stuff. Chiefs Kingdom is actually a series they're doing and this is the debut.

The second is this story in the Kansas City Star featuring Marcia Dennis, who happens to be my Mom. She has a unique 9/11 story -- one I'll share in just a bit this morning -- and she was one of the people the Star featured in their remembrance section this morning.

The third one is Michael Silver's latest at Yahoo! Sports, particularly this passage quoting former Commissioner Paul Tagliabue, who was in KC for the Giants and Chiefs first game after the attacks.
"When that crowd erupted with applause for the Giants as the opposing team appeared on the field, it was an incredible symbol of unity and an understanding of what happened in New York, that these football players were representing New York's citizens," Tagliabue says. "It was what you hoped for, and it was tremendous. That said it all - that we'd done the right thing by [pausing], and now we could move on, together - and I think the 10 years since then have confirmed it."
