I was in my car driving to the office. On the radio they were announcing that a plane just hit the World Trade Center. They didn't know what was happening or why it hit the building. It was so real to me. When I finally made it into the office. I ran into the TV room. Everyone was watching the news. Once we found out what was really going on, it was pure shock and devestation. As we watched people stumble and run aimlessly around the streets of New York, while others were running to get out. This jarred my memory of the CA Northridge earthquake. I was living in CA and had never experienced an eathquake. When it hit very early in the morning I didn't know what was happening. My bed and entire house was shaking like a doll house. I was mad and scared. After it the shaking and rumbling stopped stopped I heard a car engine turn on and screech down the road like a bat out of hell. I wanted to leave too. My roommate and neighors wouldn't let me. We were all outside checking on each other especially the elderly neighbors. We were there for each other, each neighbor a stranger, was now helping everyone like they knew them. Oddly enough, this is what happened in New York that same day and for months afterwards. This is how the website, www.MeetUp.com was created. I recieved a letter from Scott Heiferman, Co-Founder & CEO, Meetup. Scott lived a few blocks from the World Trade Center. Here is a copy of the letter:
I don't write to our whole community often, but this week is special because it's the 10th anniversary of 9/11 and many people don't know that Meetup is a 9/11 baby.
Let me tell you the Meetup story. I was living a couple miles from the Twin Towers, and I was the kind of person who thought local community doesn't matter much if we've got the internet and tv. The only time I thought about my neighbors was when I hoped they wouldn't bother me.
When the towers fell, I found myself talking to more neighbors in the days after 9/11 than ever before. People said hello to neighbors (next-door and across the city) who they'd normally ignore. People were looking after each other, helping each other, and meeting up with each other. You know, being neighborly.
A lot of people were thinking that maybe 9/11 could bring people together in a lasting way. So the idea for Meetup was born: Could we use the internet to get off the internet -- and grow local communities?
We didn't know if it would work. Most people thought it was a crazy idea -- especially because terrorism is designed to make people distrust one another.
A small team came together, and we launched Meetup 9 months after 9/11.
Today, almost 10 years and 10 million Meetuppers later, it's working. Every day, thousands of Meetups happen. Moms Meetups, Small Business Meetups, Fitness Meetups... a wild variety of 100,000 Meetup Groups with not much in common -- except one thing.
Every Meetup starts with people simply saying hello to neighbors. And what often happens next is still amazing to me. They grow businesses and bands together, they teach and motivate each other, they babysit each other's kids and find other ways to work together. They have fun and find solace together. They make friends and form powerful community. It's powerful stuff.
It's a wonderful revolution in local community, and it's thanks to everyone who shows up.
Meetups aren't about 9/11, but they may not be happening if it weren't for 9/11.
9/11 didn't make us too scared to go outside or talk to strangers. 9/11 didn't rip us apart. No, we're building new community together!!!!
The towers fell, but we rise up. And we're just getting started with these Meetups.
Scott Heiferman (on behalf of 80 people at Meetup HQ) Co-Founder & CEO, Meetup New York City September 2011
I'm sharing this with you since 9/11 is a day that I resist remembering and have lots of tears. However, today my tears were of sorrow and joy. These memories and letter is proof that we can turn liabilites into assets. We are strong even in the worst adversity. I want to thank all of the brave Americans that took over the plane on 9/11 headed for the White House. They sacrificed their lives for us. Thank you to all the people that worked for months and years to restore the World Trade Center area. Thank you to my past neighors that helped me after the earthquake. Thank you to Meet Up for creating an on line community that meets off line. Peace & Love, Kristine :)
