MTV Remembers 09.11.01
To some, September 11, 2001, seems like a lifetime ago. To others, it feels like yesterday. For all of us, the one-year memorial of the tragedies in Pennsylvania, Washington, D.C. and New York is just around the corner.
In acknowledgement of that event, MTV will air special programming before and during September 11, 2002. MTV News Presents "After 09.11: Pop Life Goes On" (click for airtimes). From David Letterman's tearful return to the airwaves to NBC's "Playboy Centerfold Fear Factor" during Super Bowl halftime, the show examines 12 months of popular culture's highs and lows. "Pop Life Goes On" then takes a swing at predicting what's on the horizon. What, if any, lasting impact will last year's tragedy have on the zeitgeist?
Online, MTV wants your ideas on what should become of the 34 acres where the World Trade Center towers once stood. In the coming weeks, we'll be accepting your design plans electronically. Create a design, then check back here after September 4 for the specifics on how to submit your plans over the Web.
MTV also welcomes your general thoughts and remembrances on what that day means to you. Where were you when you first heard the news? How did you, your friends, your family, or your school acknowledge the tragedy? What was in your CD or MP3 player during the weeks that followed? Have the events of September 11 changed your life in any way? Do you feel more or less safe thanks to actions taken abroad by the U.S. military? Are you hopeful or fearful for the future?
