The September 11th attack
Share what America means to you

Advertiser Staff

The Sept. 11 attacks and subsequent developments have frightened and angered many people. But they also have drawn Americans together and stoked the fires of patriotism in a rare way. And they have compelled people to think more carefully about the pros and cons of living in this country.

That's why the 'Ohana section wants to give some of America's youngest people a chance to publicly voice their feelings about the country in which they live.

We're inviting young people through age 18 to write to the 'Ohana section on the theme, "What America means to me."

Essays, as well as poems, are welcome. The 'Ohana section will print excerpts from as many letters as possible in an upcoming issue.

Write: What America Means to Me, 'Ohana Section, The Honolulu Advertiser, P.O. Box 3110, Honolulu, HI 96802, or fax 535-8170. Writers can send e-mail to ohana@honoluluadvertiser.com if they're 13 or older.

We want to publish the letters as soon as possible, so there will be a quick deadline: All letters must be postmarked by Saturday.
