JIM COWEN, Washington, D.C. — Jim was a naval officer on assignment at the Pentagon as Deputy Public Affairs Officer for the Chief of Naval Operations. His office was perilously close to the impact zone, though he was not injured by the crash of American Airlines Flight 77 into the west side of the U.S. military’s most secure installation. He joins us by phone from Washington, and describes in careful detail the chaos and emotion the followed the attack ten years ago.

MISSISSIPPIANS REMEMBER 911 — What do Mississippians remember of the surreal day in September of 2001? I asked them, ‘Where were you on that day and what was your reaction?”

Via Facebook — which didn’t exist at the time of 9/11 — the memories of 14 Americans around the country.

We close with country singer Alan Jackson’s Where Were You (When the World Stopped Turning)? It was written about 9/11 shortly after the attack and introduced at the Country Music Association's awards show on November 7, 2001.
