All over the country, people continue to build their personal memorials to the tragedy and heroism of September 11th. U.S. citizens, visitors, and residents alike have reevaluated their own lives, their futures, and their priorities as a result of these cataclysmic events. In this spirit of national contemplation, playwright Lavonne Mueller has created a moving collage of voices from all around America, a lasting dramatic portrait. These monologues, all emotional X-rays of national heartache and soul searching, contribute to the healing that will continue for months and years to come. Reading or performing these words will bear witness to the most horrific single event in American history since Pearl Harbor. These dramatic voices offer guidance, solace and inspiration, and above all, solidarity at a time when no American must feel alone. In the words of the American poet Theodore Roethke, In a dark time, the eye begins to see. Mueller's work helps us to focus our vision.
