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.
