Oh, how sobering.   I remember that day being a little one in school and the announcement over the loud speaker and being sent home, I didn't quite understand it all.  My sister who wasn't in school yet came in to tell my Mom that her cartoons had gone off and something else was on.   A dark and terrible time for sure.   I didn't realize there was a Museum there, your page has really done this tragic event justice and it is so well done.   I like the piece you added in the middle -- reminds me of all the banners and excitement of the beginning of that day while the bottom paper is dark and sad - and as fractured as that day and time felt, Im' sure.

Thanks for noting the banners and the fractured paper - those were the emotions I was completely trying to convey with those tools!

Don't you love when that happens without any explanation?   It's a really powerful page.

You've made a truly compelling and powerful page. I didn't realize there's a museum there, but of course, that makes sense. This was an awful day that you've scrapped so well and in a sensitive  way.

Gosh I remember the day well although I was only 9 when it happened. I didn't really understand what was going on, but even for me in the UK it felt like something earth-shattering had taken place. For anyone old enough to remember, this page says it all.

Such a coincidence - just last night I watched a 3-part special on that day. I think it was on National Geographic channel. Seeing the colors of your photo exactly echoed the video on the tv show, taken at the time. There was that contrast between the excitement and celebration the morning started with, and the dark somberness that ended it. You've captured it well.
