(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — On September 11, 2001, the world witnessed the worst terrorist act in American history. It is a day none of us will ever forget. For the 10th Anniversary of 9/11, I asked those who were working within the soap opera industry if they would like to share their thoughts and memories about that horrific day. Here are the stories from former soap writers Tom Casiello, Tom King, and former soap writer/producer Lisa Connor.
Tom Casiello: “I remember being alone in my apartment that morning, standing in my bedroom getting dressed when the first plane hit.”
Tom King: “9/11 fell on a Tuesday, the day when normally we “One Life to Live” writers met to start planning the new week of outlines.”
Lisa Connor: “I was producing at “AMC” at the time. The morning was perfect. I remember walking down West End Avenue and thinking ‘this is the most perfect day’.”
Lastly, here is my 9/11 story along with Soap Opera Network’s Editor-in-Chief Errol Lewis, and Co-Administrator/Reporter Scotty Gore: SON Staff Remembers 9/11
