I'LL HEAL IN TIME - Jillian Suarez's story is one she says she doesn't want to tell with tears. Jillian's father, a New York City police officer, didn't come home on 9/11 and for three months her mother held out hope he would be found alive - until she received a call that his remains had been found. Now 18 years old, Jillian rarely speaks about her loss. For this piece, she decided to push through her silence to sit down with some of the closest people in her life, including her mom, to talk about her father's death and what his absence has meant to her.

FREEDOM WALK - Joey Rizzolo was six years old when he watched the events of September 11, 2001 on TV, while folding laundry with his grandma in his living room. At the time, Joey didn't understand the larger meaning of what was happening - all he knew was that planes had hit buildings. When, at 11 years old, he started to understand a little better what he saw, Joey decided to initiate a Freedom Walk to help residents of his town, Paramus, NJ, remember and honor the victims of 9/11. Joey continues to organize the event with a committee of teenagers, who carry out all the fundraising, publicity, and logistics. Last year's Freedom Walk drew almost 1,000 people.

Comedy Since 9/11
Segment aired during Morning Edition (5am-9am) and All Things Considered (4pm-8pm)
How do comedians joke about 9/11 and terrorism now? How has that evolved in the last 10 years? Of course predictions about the death of irony and, by extension, comedy, were wrong. Why is it important to joke about even deadly serious subjects? Are there still some things comedians can’t say, or approaches not wise to take? Also: what’s funny? Who’s telling a good post-9/11 joke these days, and what is it? (Jim O'Grady)

LAST TO REMEMBER - After the death of Osama bin Laden, young people took to the streets to celebrate and there was discussion in the media about a "9/11 Generation," the young people who came of age after the attacks. Brendan Illis was a first-grader in suburban New Jersey on September 11, 2001, and he has only vague memories of that day. Even so, he feels shaped by the events and their aftermath and hopes to join the military. His younger siblings, who don't remember 9/11, feel little connection to it. Brendan reports on whether or not his peers and younger siblings feel that 9/11 impacted their world view. He asks the question: is there, in fact, a "9/11 generation?"

DAUGHTER OF A SURVIVOR -  Erin Reeg's parents were paramedics when they met and fell in love.

When the first tower fell on September 11th, Erin's father was hit by falling debris and all the coping strategies Erin learned from her parents kicked in. She and her sister went about life as usual, even though their father spent two weeks in the hospital, coming out a changed man.

SPEAKING FOR ISLAM - Norhan Basuni divides her life into the time before September 11th, and the time after. For her, it is the day that she became a symbol of Islam, and to some, of terrorism. In the wake of the attacks, she remembers her father telling her she could no longer wear hijab because he feared for her safety after family friends were attacked in the street. She was taunted by classmates in school. She found herself having to represent and explain an entire religion, which was so tarnished by the depraved acts of a few. Now an accomplished 21-year-old college graduate, Norhan reports on how she coped with these experiences as a preteen and teenager, and how she developed into an educator, a spoken word poet, and a defender of her faith.

ROADMAP FOR RECOVERY -  Eric Leinung was 11-years-old when his older brother, Paul, went to work on the 100th floor of the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. Paul didn't make it out. When adolescents are faced with a traumatic event, research shows that they often vent their feelings through aggression and rage. Eric spent his teen years fighting, sometimes physically, with his mom. Now, 10 years after the Twin Towers collapsed, Eric reports on how he found his way through his family's loss. He has channeled a lot of his grief into being an actor and currently has a weekend gig in the "shadow cast" of The Rocky Horror Picture Show.

"Measuring Time" Preview: This summer, WNYC and WQXR began asking listeners and guests: “What music would you like to hear as you think about the events of 10 years ago?” Ever since, the stations have been compiling a growing and thought-provoking playlist. Before he hosts this weekend’s “Measuring Time” special John Schaefer previews some of the music suggestions we’ve received. Plus: Many of Soundcheck’s in-studio performances have featured work that reflects on the events of Sept. 11. We revisit several of those moments on the show. Plus: De-facto Anthem. In the wake of 9/11, certain music that was recorded well before the attacks suddenly took on new meaning. Alt-country singer-songwriter Ryan Adams joins us to explain how “New York, New York,” his country pop rave-up about heartbreak in the East Village, was transformed by tragedy and triumph. And, Adams performs a stunning arrangement of the song at our piano.

Photography post-9/11: We've heard so many stories recently of photographers - both professional photojournalists and regular people - being told they have no right to photograph or film something that they do in fact have a right to photograph or film. Often, law enforcement officials cite broad national security concerns or laws that don't actually exist. We decided to look into the reports. Marc Maron on comedy after 9/11: Comedian and host of the WTF podcast, Marc Maron talks about sitting down to write comedy after the attacks and doing material that felt intensely personal and honest but ended up offending some of his audiences. Al Jazeera Ten Years Later: Most Americans heard of Al Jazeera after the September 11th attacks. At the time, the network was called a mouthpiece for terrorists. In the ten years since the attacks, Al Jazeera has come a long way. Today, the Demand Al Jazeera English campaign seeks to get Al Jazeera's English language channel on cable providers in the US. We take a look at the campaign for Al Jazeera here in the states and the controversy it sparked in one small town.

New Sounds
Airs at 11pm on 93.9 FM
On the morning of September 11, 2001, Brooklyn composer William Basinski was finishing a project based on some very old tape-loops he’d made.  The tape itself was disintegrating, and Basinski allowed the loops to play continuously while he recorded them digitally, capturing the process of the music’s demise.  The sounds of the music dying accompanied Basinski as he watched the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks from his Brooklyn rooftop.  We’ll hear an excerpt from this extraordinary project.  Also, a recording of an old homeless man in London singing a fragment of a hymn tune in the 1970s packed an unexpected emotional punch when turned into a tape loop by Gavin Bryars.  The resulting piece, “Jesus’ Blood Never Failed Me Yet,” remains his most famous piece, and a work of quiet consolation.

Revisiting “Lost and Found” Colson Whitehead’s essay “Lost and Found” was originally published in The New York Times Magazine on November 11th, 2001—one of a series of special commissions asking writers to celebrate the city in the wake of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. For this anniversary program recognizing the 10th anniversary of the attacks, we offer Whitehead’s essay in a reading by Alec Baldwin, paired with an arresting story by the Japanese writer Haruki Murakami, “U.F.O. in Kushiro,” read by Ken Leung. Host Isaiah Sheffer and Literary Commentator Hannah Tinti will reflect on the work in light of the past decade.

On The Media
Airs at 3pm on AM 820
Photography post-9/11: We've heard so many stories recently of photographers - both professional photojournalists and regular people - being told they have no right to photograph or film something that they do in fact have a right to photograph or film. Often, law enforcement officials cite broad national security concerns or laws that don't actually exist. We decided to look into the reports. Marc Maron on comedy after 9/11: Comedian and host of the WTF podcast, Marc Maron talks about sitting down to write comedy after the attacks and doing material that felt intensely personal and honest but ended up offending some of his audiences. Al Jazeera Ten Years Later: Most Americans heard of Al Jazeera after the September 11th attacks. At the time, the network was called a mouthpiece for terrorists. In the ten years since the attacks, Al Jazeera has come a long way. Today, the Demand Al Jazeera English campaign seeks to get Al Jazeera's English language channel on cable providers in the US. We take a look at the campaign for Al Jazeera here in the states and the controversy it sparked in one small town.

Living Nine Eleven
Airs at 4pm on 93.9 FM, 8pm on AM 820
Ten years after the World Trade Center attacks, WNYC's 10th Anniversary Special explores New Yorkers’ most visceral and immediate emotional reactions to the terrorist attacks of 9/11 and how they are – and are not - still with us today. Fear and shock, grief and guilt, anger, gratitude and solidarity - these emotions overwhelmed many New Yorkers along with the billowing cloud of smoke and debris after the Towers collapsed. WNYC’s award-winning news team spent days, months, and then years reporting on the attacks and their aftermath. Through a mix of their recordings at the time and interviews with people ten years later, WNYC reporter Marianne McCune guides us through the stories of people who were directly impacted by what happened and have been struggling for a decade to make sense of it.

Bach: Solace and Inspiration
Airs at 4pm on 105.9 FM WQXR
Immediately after the attacks of September 11, 2001, WNYC began non-stop news coverage, keeping New Yorkers crucially informed from our studios just blocks from the World Trade Center. Like many, Producer/Host David Garland, was shaken by the attacks, which had at first swept aside the former significance of now apparently trivial things like art and music. But as the intense emergency of 9/11 subsided, Garland turned to the music of 18th Century German composer Johann Sebastian Bach. Moved by Bach's deep emotion, the beauty of Bach's musical logic, and the profound way Bach's music is able to express the truths and ideals of humanity, Garland created "Bach: Solace and Inspiration," to inaugurate WNYC's return to music programming on September 23, 2001. Through music and brief commentary, Garland and special guests convey the introspective and universal, heart-felt and uplifting marvels of Bach's work. Guests on the program include British conductor Sir John Elliot Gardiner, harpsichordist Arthur Haas, and Rick Ericson, Cantor of Holy Trinity Lutheran Church in New York City. Hester Furman, then Music Director of WNYC, helped produce the program. For this tenth anniversary of 9/11, David Garland has assembled highlights from "Bach: Solace and Inspiration."

New Sounds
Airs at 11pm on 93.9 FM
Music written in response to the 9/11 attacks.  Pulitzer Prize-winning composers Steve Reich and John Adams each used an almost documentary approach to the events of 9/11; we’ll hear excerpts from both.  Michael Gordon’s “The Sad Park” is built on recordings of young children in the playground on Chambers Street, two blocks from the World Financial Center, describing that morning.  And Robert Moran’s new “Trinity Requiem” was written for the nearby Trinity Church choir.  We’ll hear excerpts from those pieces as well.

Cindy from Long island, ny

I listened this morning 9/7 and couldn't turn Erin off, although I very much wished I could. Her story was so upsetting for so many reasons. My husband and 2 year old lived on the corner of west side hwy and chambers street that day and I remember looking out my window and the unbelievable site. I remember running uptown with my 2 year old and having no idea where my husband was and if he was alive, since he worked in the American stock exchange at the time. Listening today was heartbreaking. I wished I could have turned it off because I was driving and crying and it had a sad effect on my entire day. The part about the heartless teacher that made her sister standin front of the class....I hope she was reprimanded and maybe even fired. How could a person do that....like it was light fare for all the look and listen? These girls were living in NY no less, so this teacher couldn't really have been that ignorant.

Sadly because I know they will all be fascinating stories, I won't be able to listen any further. It's like opening a wound that I don't want to heal again. I am still healing. That day changed our lives and everyone else's so much. I know it's an anniversary, but I feel like it's a more private event than this. Listening today, and she was a great rookie reporter, was just oo hard to hear. I was upset all day and can't to it for another 4 days.
