America Remembers 9/11: Your Answers on What’s Changed in 10 Years

BY News Desk  August 18, 2011 at 5:40 PM EST

As the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks draws closer, The PBS NewsHour and our public media colleagues have been seeking out your views on what’s changed in the United States over the past decade.

Some of you have already submitted your thoughts via YouTube or by speaking with public media camera crews across the country.

Here is the first look at our still-evolving “9/11 Video Quilt” project:

We’d like you to record a 90-second video response and submit it via YouTube. We’ll feature some responses in our online Video Quilt and on the NewsHour broadcast.

Here are Hari Sreenivasan, Gwen Ifill, Judy Woodruff, Jeffrey Brown and Ray Suarez with more:

Ready With Your Answer?

Here are those questions, one more time:

  • Is the U.S. safer now than before 9/11?

  • Was the course or direction of your life changed on 9/11. If so, how?

  • It was often said that 9/11 “changed everything.” Did it?

  • How would you describe current relations between Muslims and non-Muslims in the United States?

  • Have we achieved a balance between your civil liberties and security?

Working with our public media colleagues, we hope to reach into many more communities to hear more voices on this important anniversary. We’ll collect your your responses through the anniversary.

Our coverage continues both online and on-air as the anniversary draws near. On Sept. 11, 2011, be sure to tune in for a NewsHour special called “America Remembers 9/11,” at 8 p.m. ET. Our reporting team will cover the day’s memorial services as well as a variety of unique reporting from around the country looking at America 10 years later.
