This week on The VPR Saturday Special, "Living Nine Eleven."
Ten years after the terrorist attacks of September 11th, this special
produced by WNYC explores New Yorkers’ most visceral and immediate
emotional reactions to the attack on the World Trade Center and how they
are, or aren’t, still with us today.
Fear and shock, grief and guilt, anger, gratitude and solidarity: these emotions overwhelmed many New Yorkers along with the billowing cloud of smoke and debris after the Towers collapsed.
WNYC’s award-winning news team spent days, months, and then years reporting on the attacks and their aftermath. Through a mix of their recordings at the time and interviews with people ten years later, WNYC reporter Marianne McCune guides us through the stories of people who were directly impacted by what happened and have been struggling for a decade to make sense of it.
