The Eleventh of September
It’s eleven years to the day since a series of terrorist attacks forever changed both the physical and emotional landscape of our nation.  On today's HearSay we'll examine some of the lasting and often overlooked consequences of those tragic events.  In our first segment, host Cathy Lewis explores the heavy weight borne by those fortunate enough to survive a traumatic experience.  Later we'll address how the past eleven years have set the ongoing "war on terror" at odds with our civil liberties and right to privacy.
