Funerals Are For the Living


Who are you remembering today?

Who are you remembering today?

Remembering A Life is a community of people who cherish the memories of loved ones and keep those memories alive through meaningful tributes, personal reflection and storytelling.  We invite you to share the story of your loved one and how you have chosen to honor his or her life and your loss here, on RememberingALife.com. Include photos if you like. You do not have to be a professional writer in order to share your grief story; there is no right or wrong way to impart whatever memories or events feel right to you. The most important thing is to feel comfortable with whatever you choose to tell. Sharing your story will inspire others to share their stories, too; in doing so you will help them - and you – feel less alone. 

Submitted stories are reviewed before posting on RememberingALife.com; please allow up to two weeks for your story to be posted.

9/11 20th Anniversary

Where were you the morning of September 11, 2001? Most of us who are old enough to remember the terrorist attacks that morning also remember exactly where we were and what we were doing when we heard the news that one plane, and then another had hit the World Trade Center, followed by two more in Pennsylvania and at the Pentagon. Many of us were going about our normal morning routine – having breakfast, getting children ready for school or heading off to work right before we learned of the attacks that would change our lives.
 
Now, as we acknowledge the 20th anniversary of that tragic day, Remembering A Life would like to honor the many personal experiences and memories that have been part of our collective grief journey, as a nation, over the past two decades. Whether you lost a loved one that day, were a first responder, or are simply reflecting on your thoughts and emotions twenty years later, please consider sharing your story with us, either through the written word or a video recording. Stories will be shared on the Remembering A Life website and on social media (and you’ll only be identified by your first name, city and state). Please know that your story will be received with care and compassion.
 
Every person who submits a story (written or video) will receive a Remembering A Life Grief Journal.
