On Sept. 11, 2001, the United States was changed forever when terrorists hijacked four airliners and turned them into piloted missiles. The death and destruction from those attacks on New York City, Washington, D.C., and Shanksville, Pa., left an imprint on the hearts and minds of Americans.
As part of the Tribune-Star's 10th anniversary coverage of the 9/11 attacks, we offer a special section — 9/11: Ten Years Later — in Saturday's print and online editions. The 10-page section includes more 9/11 memories and stories on how events on Sept. 11, 2001, changed life in the Wabash Valley.
Publisher B.J. Riley offers his own personal memories from that day. Other features include staff stories and photos on defining moments for Valley residents, how the attacks changed the teaching of history in the U.S. and how, we as a nation, have changed.
