Twenty years ago, I witnessed a few things in Darien that may be worth passing on. (I’m not sure how much this is worth — certainly none of it is as important as what actually happened in lower Manhattan or at the Pentagon or on board Flight 93. But it shows some of what happened in this town on that day. Darienites, in different degrees, experienced the horror here in town. Five town residents and a sixth former resident with a family in town died that day, along with thousands of others, including some with families in Darien.)
I was doing some freelance work for the Stamford Advocate and went out into town to gather reactions to the massacres that had just taken place that morning at the World Trade Center and Pentagon.
