Let's start with what we know.Almost immediately, thousands of people died ten years ago. Countless lives were changed. Landscapes and skylines were scarred and scattered.But it's been ten years since 9/11. An entire decade.So, then, let's move forward with what we don't know for sure: how does something that started ten years ago still reach us, here in the St. Louis region, today? Did it ever end? Will it?Through local news features, dedicated segments of St. Louis on the Air and special coverage from NPR we'll venture into these questions with you.We'll document our journalistic explorations below and we encourage you to offer your feedback.Tweet us with your experiences of Sept. 11 @stlpublicradio, share with us on Facebook and comment on any of our stories on stlpublicradio.org.ResourcesCommunity Event Guide for Remembrance & ServiceFull details of St. Louis Public Radio Sept. 11 coverage

Today we recognize one of the most significant Tuesday mornings in history, September 11, 2001.

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 Facebook or on Twitter.

Because we understand that everyone recognizes Sept. 11 in different ways, we have a variety of resources for you:

From NPR today: reporting on how commemoration ceremonies this year are decidedly lower-key than in years past.

Statement from President Obama - from his weekly address

Statements from sitting Missouri senators Roy Blunt and Claire McCaskill on the anniversary.

From St. Louis on the Air: our show from this week - a discussion about how life has changed in the 11 years since the tragedy on September 11, 2001.

Understanding 9/11: A television news archive - a vast collection of television coverage from Sept. 11, not only from US media, but also from around the world. 

Sept. 11: a decade later - explore several stories on different aspects on how the events of Sept. 11 effected our lives. These stories were completed by our reporters last year, in recognition of the tenth anniversary of the date. 

Included are the following:
