America Remembers 9/11: What’s Changed in 10 Years?

August 19, 2011

Our colleagues at the PBS Newshour and local PBS stations across the country have been asking Americans about 9/11’s legacy and they want to hear from you:

+ 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?

They’re patching the responses together in a “9/11 Video Quilt” — the beginnings of which can be seen here — and they want to include your response. Record a 90-second video and upload it to the Newshour‘s YouTube channel. Your video may be featured in the quilt, or even on the broadcast.
