9/11: One year later

Sunday, September 08, 2002

In the days after the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks, many said that our sense of security, our economy and our very way of life were going to be radically altered.

On the first anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, the Post-Gazette offers a special package of personal stories of heroism, loss, survival and hope born out of tragedy in New York, Washington, D.C., and Shanksville, Somerset County.

Forty lives, One Destiny
A team of Post-Gazette reporters threads together the heroic story of how the crew and passengers aboard United Airlines Flight 93 rose in revolt against their hijackers on Sept. 11, thwarting an attack meant to kill thousands more at the price of their own lives.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's special 16-page afternoon edition published Tuesday, Sept. 11, 2001 covered the terrorist attacks in New York and Washington D.C and the crash of Flight 93 in Somerset County, capturing what was known and what was still unclear in the hours after the terror attacks.

Some even wondered if a fearful populace would abandon our biggest cities and how Americans would respond to an unprecedented attack on civilians on home soil.

A year later many things have changed. And some important things have not changed at all.

The following links connect with key elements of our coverage surrounding the anniversary of the terrible events of Sept. 11, 2001.
