9/11

As the ten-year anniversary of 9/11 approaches, many of us remember where we were when we first heard about the twin towers. Here are some resources that look back at that time in history and resources that document how the events of 9/11 have changed our lives. The 9/11 Commission Report: Final Report of the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks upon the United States (9/11 Report) is still available to read online.  The Internet Archive hosts a section called “Understanding 9/11: A Television News Archive” where you can view short clips of what was happening in the U. S. from 9/11 through 9/17.

  1. I was coming home from Eastern Kansas yesterday, and saw several people in policemen, firemen, and other service workers’ uniforms with a big banner that read “We will never forget 9-11!”–Judy S.
