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.

St. Louis Public Radio's Marshall Griffin and Chris McDaniel have been covering the veto session, and gave host Don Marsh an overview of what to expect this year.
