A 9/11 journey

I'm heading out on the road this morning to tell some stories on the 10th anniversary of Sept. 11. Maybe you can help.

Our plan is for me to write for Friday's paper from Washington, D.C., where terrorists attacked the Pentagon; for Saturday from Shanksville, Pa., where Flight 93 crashed in a field after passengers fought the hijackers; and for Sunday and Monday from New York, where at the World Trade Center site, they are rebuilding.

If you know of 9/11-related things I should see in those cities, or people I should meet, drop me a line in the comments or email (You'll get an automated reply that says I'm out of the office, but I can still read your emails.)

I'm looking for people with connections to both Sept. 11 and North Carolina, especially the Charlotte area.

And if there's anything 9/11-related along the way that I need to see or do, let me know. I hope to post here from time to time in between the bigger stories. Would love to hear any thoughts or ideas... even if it's just what you're thinking about now, 10 years down the road.

Take a walk through Trinity Church (I believe that's the name of it)'s the church that survived the morning of 9/11 and is now a memorial to the day and to the workers.

Good luck with your trek. I know you said that you wanted stories from people with ties to Charlotte, how about from someone that you went to BHS with you? I live in Jersey for the past 17 years and have plenty of stories about 9/11.

Was watching ESPN with my son this 9 year old can't believe that I went to high school with a "movie star".

If you are going to be in the city for more than a day, look me up and I will buy you a drink.

Keep up the great work!
