A Voice from Three Years Ago

Seen via Avocare, Jeff Jarvis, a reporter and World Trade Centre survivor, puts down in a series of audio files what he thought and felt on that day.
I've recorded my narrative of Sept. 11 in audio. I wrote the story hours after the attack and since then, when I've told more of it here on this blog, people have responded, sending me email, telling me in other blogs to keep on witnessing, or just reading. And so, before I forgot the details, I decided to tell the fuller story of that day and to tell it instead of writing it.
It starts with him getting out of the last train ever to arrive at the WTC station, just after the first aircraft hit... one of the most arresting pieces of oral history ever recorded.
