That Day: My Story of September 11th
Jean Colaio, author
A grieving sister transforms the devastating aftermath of the September 11 attacks into an opportunity for healing in Jean Colaio’s emotional memoir, That Day.Only a few blocks away when the Twin Towers fell, Colaio and her young son manage to escape in a flurry of chaos and confusion: What happened? Is the country at war? And most importantly, were her brothers, who both worked in the towers, alive? Then, the day they had all been dreading finally came: both of the author’s beloved brothers had been killed in the terrorist attacks. Recalling in vivid detail the devastation and confusion of that fateful day, as well as the agonizing moments of suspense during the days that followed, Colaio provides an unprecedented glimpse into the heart of the personal and national grief that touches America to this day.

Jean Colaio writes from her heart about her firsthand experience on 9/11, and the aftermath of sorting out life after the loss of her two brothers. Her style is honest and direct as she recounts the many layers of pain that enveloped her and her family. Readers encounter a very personal take on the historic tragedy that shocked the world, along with very personal reflections that attempt to make peace with her new reality. I highly recommend this book. It contributes greatly to the understanding of what people close to the tragedy actually experienced.

Well written first hand account of the tremendous loss a sister encounters. Spiritual and inspirational as well. As a Former Hicksville resident, I felt a connection to the author and read the book in two hours cover to cover. Just could not put it down.

Pretty cool account of a 9/11 survivor. The author is a neighbor and unfortunately lost several family members that day. Too much of that went on that day in this town.
