Sept. 11: a decade later http://news.stlpublicradio.org en Still Feeling The Effects Of 9/11, 12 Years Later http://news.stlpublicradio.org/post/still-feeling-effects-911-12-years-later <p>The September 11 terrorist attacks were a tragedy unlike anything the United States had experienced. They set the nation on a new path and their ramifications, both big and small, are still felt today, twelve years on.</p><p>There are the obvious consequences: thousands of people who died that day, two wars, the Patriot Act, the creation of the Department of Homeland Security. And then there are the more subtle and pervasive ones: our mental state, how Muslims are perceived in America. Even our architecture has changed.</p> Wed, 11 Sep 2013 22:13:17 +0000 Camille Phillips 29826 at http://news.stlpublicradio.org Still Feeling The Effects Of 9/11, 12 Years Later Arts And Faith St. Louis Commemorates September 11th Through Music http://news.stlpublicradio.org/post/arts-and-faith-st-louis-commemorates-september-11th-through-music <p dir="ltr">With the anniversary of September 11th on the horizon, Arts and Faith St. Louis is again gearing up for a concert to both remember the tragedy and promote unity across faith backgrounds.</p> Sat, 07 Sep 2013 00:03:40 +0000 Camille Phillips 29675 at http://news.stlpublicradio.org Arts And Faith St. Louis Commemorates September 11th Through Music SLU To Test Cancer Drugs Against Potential Biological Threat http://news.stlpublicradio.org/post/slu-test-cancer-drugs-against-potential-biological-threat <p></p><p>Saint Louis University is launching a study to explore whether two cancer medications could also help protect U.S. troops from bioterrorism attacks.</p><p>SLU is part of a consortium of institutions participating in the project, which is funded by the U.S. Department of Defense.</p> Thu, 04 Apr 2013 22:12:47 +0000 Véronique LaCapra 25142 at http://news.stlpublicradio.org SLU To Test Cancer Drugs Against Potential Biological Threat Sept. 11: 11 years on http://news.stlpublicradio.org/post/sept-11-11-years <p>Today we recognize one of the most significant Tuesday mornings in history, September 11, 2001.</p><p>We know everyone has their own unique experiences of that day, and we welcome you to share those with us and the St. Louis Public Radio communities here on stlpublicradio.org, on<a href="http://www.facebook.com/stlpublicradio"> Facebook</a> or <a href="http://twitter.com/stlpublicradio">on Twitter</a>.</p><p>Because we understand that everyone recognizes Sept. 11 in different ways, we have a variety of resources for you:</p><p> Tue, 11 Sep 2012 14:56:07 +0000 Kelsey Proud 4562 at http://news.stlpublicradio.org Sept. 11: 11 years on Morning Headlines: Monday, Sept. 12, 2011 http://news.stlpublicradio.org/post/morning-headlines-monday-sept-12-2011 <p><strong>Tornado survivors finish National 9/11 flag</strong></p> Mon, 12 Sep 2011 13:20:20 +0000 Rachel Lippmann, The Associated Press & Illinois Public Radio 2028 at http://news.stlpublicradio.org Morning Headlines: Monday, Sept. 12, 2011 Muslims remember 9/11 with prayer, community service http://news.stlpublicradio.org/node/2027 <p>Members of many faiths gathered at the grounds of the Gateway Arch on Sunday to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the September 11th attacks.</p><p>The St. Louis office of the Council of American-Islamic Relations organized the event, which included a recitation of the Muslim afternoon prayer.</p><p>After 9/11, members of the Muslim community were blamed for the attacks simply because of their religion, said Faizan Syed, CAIR&#39;s executive director here in St. Louis.</p> Sun, 11 Sep 2011 20:00:00 +0000 Rachel Lippmann 2027 at http://news.stlpublicradio.org Muslims remember 9/11 with prayer, community service Sept. 11: a decade later http://news.stlpublicradio.org/post/sept-11-decade-later <p>Let&#39;s start with what we know.</p><p>Almost immediately, thousands of people died ten years ago.
