"The Day That Changed The World" is an exhibit that will be on display at the Parchment Library through the end of the month.
PARCHMENT, Mich. — (CW7michigan.com) - The Parchment Community Library opened a new exhibit on Wednesday, September 1, 2021.
“This exhibit is called, September 11, 2001 – The Day That Changed the World. It’s an exhibit consisting of fourteen posters that were put together by the 9/11 Memorial and Museum in New York City,” Library Ambassador Karen Woodworth said.
The exhibit goes through the entire day and aftermath of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.
“It’s easy to see we saw the worst of humanity on display that day.” Woodworth said. “Such a massive loss of life on purpose. But we also saw some of the best of humanity and I really like how this exhibit highlights those individual stories.”
The exhibit is meant to get people to reflect on the events of 9/11, 20 years later.
“We have young adults who weren’t even born when 9/11 happened. We have older adults who may have forgotten some of the details,” Woodworth said. “It (the exhibit) just seemed like a real meaningful way to take a moment and think about what happened 20 years ago on this 20th anniversary of 9/11.”
After the exhibit, the library has invited those to ‘Share Your Response.’ It asks those to reflect on your thoughts of the exhibits, to share your memories of where you were on 9/11, and how you will remember 9/11 going forward. The responses will be compiled together for all to read in a community binder.
The exhibit will be available for anyone to see during normal business hours through the end of September 2021.
