Tune-in to CBC Radio and Television, as we mark the 10th anniversary of 9/11.
It was only 10 years ago, that sunny morning when "everything changed" for America--and the world. On Sept. 11, 2001, the planes hijacked by Al-Qaeda terrorists caused chaos and terrible loss of life in the worst terrorist attack in U.S. history. For 10 years, the events of that single day have reverberated around the world, changing our politics, our economic well-being, and our sense of security.
