On the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, the nation pauses to remember. Ceremonies take place at memorials in New York City; Shanksville, Pa.; and at the Pentagon in Arlington, Va. President Biden travels to all three sites today to pay respects. And former president George W. Bush speaks at the Flight 93 Memorial in Pennsylvania. The ceremony in New York City begins at 8:30 a.m. ET.
On the 20th anniversary of the terrorist attacks of September 11, Walter Edgar's Journal offers this special encore of a conversation with Lyndon Harris, who was on Wall Street the day the World Trade Center towers fell. At that time, Gaffney, SC, native Lyndon Harris was the Priest in Charge of St. Paul's Episcopal Chapel, which was across from the World Trade Center. In September of 2011, Harris returned to his home state to take part in an exhibition at the Cherokee County History and Arts Museum, Eyewitnesses to 9/11: From Tragedy to Transformation. He joined Walter Edgar in our studio to tell the story of the extraordinary ministry begun at St. Paul’s on 9/12 and about his work with Gardens of Forgiveness, where he is currently Executive Director. Harris is also minister at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of the Carolina Foothills.
