Oral Histories of 911
Hi guys :)!
Hey John Scalzi, our illustrious journal leader, brought up a painful subject on a blog and I thought that everyone in Journal land should think about it...
If you want to review what he said it's:http:/journals.aol.com/johnscalzi/by theway/entries/4585 and he he quotes The NY Times about his subject: Witness to History, the oral histories of fireman,policemen,and emergency workers of 911. It would seem that soem powers to be in New york decided to publish these oral histories (release them to the public).
What do you think? Do you think we should and what for?
I was fortunate to be able to buy a book from a photographer who came here and he had made huge photos of these guys and had ashow with their pictures and some comments that they gave him as heroes. They are heroes people.
What do you think?
I think that we could gain form a review of what communication links worked and where we all could give more support as far as the organizations are but not focus on people.This is becasue I think organizationally we could problem solve about who needs better relay systems or computers,etc.
My friend here dragonrose637 pointed out that her husband is a fireman and it could be bad for some of the individual workers to hear these stories and have other people hear them.Let me know...
