9/11 COVERAGE September 20, 2001

There are old newspaper clips on this site, as well as these old radio reports. Sometimes, though, you can hear things in the voice that you just can't get from the printed page. This Fresh Air report, broadcast nine days after 9/11, is my best example of that. At that moment, I was emotionally raw - not only from watching nonstop coverage of the terrorist attacks and their aftermath for so long, but by personal stuff that had hit me just as hard, including the separate sudden deaths of my father and stepmother and the equally sudden death, just a few weeks before, of my 25-year marriage. All that came out, somehow, in this piece, and even though I choked up while delivering it, my producer, Phyllis Myers (another great Fresh Air friend), wouldn't allow me to record another take. In retrospect, it was the right call.

Thank you so much for letting us hear this eloquent essay again. Thirteen years later, it still rings true. As in the JFK assassination, nothing is the same.
