That Day in September: My personal experience of 9/11. How it was that I was there; what it was I witnessed and what it was like to be in New York City during that time. (Artie Van Why)

That Day in September began as an email written the morning of September 12th by Artie to his friends and family, putting down into words, for the first time, what he had gone through that previous day. At the urging of those he sent the email to, Artie continued writing about his experience. With the help, and direction, of actor, and former SAG President, Richard Masur, Artie took what he was writing and put it together as a one man theater piece. That Day in September premiered in Los Angeles in October of 2002 to critical acclaim. In the summer of 2004 That Day in September opened Off-Broadway in New York City. It is Artie's hope that his story will continue to be told, so that we never forget that moment of our history. The online publication of That Day in September is for that purpose.

What I remember about September 11 was walking through dense smoke and realizing that some if it consisted of incinerated people that I was to carry uptown in my chest.
