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
