My Visit To World Trade Center Site One Month After 9/11

In the days following the Sept. 11 tragedy, Andy and I struggled to find the right tone for our morning radio show on WTRV FM. We really are not a political morning show or a "newsy" kind of show either. We are a current affairs / entertainment based show that uses -- or at least tries to -- use a lot of humor.

We really couldn't do "business as usual" the following morning. No one was really in the mood for it. It took a few weeks and a few missteps along the way to get back to what we do best. During that time, September of 2001, our radio station constructed two foam core 4' x 8' thank you cards. Mary Ann Meyer of Signs and Wonders in Sparta did the graphics thanking the rescue and aid station workers. WTRV staff carried those big signs to several pubic gatherings to allow everyone to write a few words. It was a beautiful thing...two big cards covered in magic-marker thoughts and prayers.

One month to the day, Mary Ann and I hand delivered those signs to the main Salvation Army aid station directly across the street from where the towers came down. The sights and smells are still with me today.

What Do Americans Think About Sacrificing Rights to Fight Terrorism After 9/11?

The terror attacks on Sept. 11, 2001 left an indelible mark on Americans. But even as the first responders climbed through the rubble in New York, Washington, DC and Pennsylvania, the country embarked on a “War on Terror.” With that war came years of conflict in Afghanistan and Iraq, indefinite detention of terror suspects without charges or trial, enhanced interrogation techniques, extraordinary rendition and the passage of the USA Patriot Act.

Ten years later, Americans are still wondering if it was wise to sacrifice some privacy and freedoms in order to fight terrorism.
