We pause this week to remember the day our city and nation changed forever:  September 11, 2001.

We pause this week to remember the day our city and nation changed forever: September 11, 2001. We'll meet a man who survived the attack on the Pentagon, and another who took on the monumental task of rebuilding the iconic structure. We'll hear from military families and the local Muslim community, and hit the streets to talk with residents about their memories of that historic day.
