For Artie Van Why, 9/11 is not just a chapter in our history books. For him, 9/11 is when his life, as he knew it, was indelibly changed forever. Artie wasn’t watching the events unfold on TV; as most of America, and the world, were that morning. He was in New York; standing on Church Street before the World Trade Center.

As a 9/11 eyewitness, Artie has pledged to share his story of that fateful morning as a Playwright, an Author and, first and foremost, a Public Speaker. As Artie’s speaking engagements increase, he is being recognized for his captivating narrative; transporting his audiences back to the events of that morning as if they were right there beside him.

And as a 9/11 survivor, Artie shares his struggle with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD); which can affect anyone who has had to face a tragedy, trauma or loss.
