Take Time To Remember 9/11

Images of 9/11 flashed through my mind at the same Ellerbe Road intersection I was at 6 years ago. Reports of the 9/11 terrorist attacks were ringing through the radio the same way memories of that day were today.

As the enormity of the news registered in 2001, I was talking with former Times editor Judy Christie. She was scheduled for a morning flight. I vaguely remember saying, "You aren't going to Washington D.C. today."

Shreveporttimes.com went into overdrive as we confirmed President Bush would address the nation from Barksdale Air Force Base (photo right) . 6 years ago...

Take time to remember:

  • Remembrances around the nation.
  • A photographer reflects.
  • An archive to review.
