A selection of writings by members of H.E.A.R.T. 9/11 are being featured in an exhibit at the Morgan Library Museum until May 22. H.E.A.R.T. 9/11 is a volunteer disaster response nonprofit organization.
The writings are from the organization's president and founder, Bill Keegan, and member Steve Mona are part of an exhibit called "The Diary" at the museum, 225 Madison Ave. at 36th street. The pages of the journals from Keegan and Mona were filled during the World Trade Center rescue and recovery effort. The writings are on loan to the museum to show an example of the personal reflections of the recovery workers on Sept. 11, according to a news release by the nonprofit organization.
Update: The New York Times wrote about "The Diary" in a recent exhibition review.
Keegan, who took part in the 9/11 Memorial's speakers series, was a Port Authority of New York and New Jersey police lieutenant attached to a special operations division when he was named an operations chief on Sept. 12, 2001. Mona is a former lieutenant with the New York Police Department. For more information on the exhibition, check out the Morgan blog.
