This is a day when all Americans from every walk of life unite in our resolve for justice and peace. America has stood down enemies before, and we will do so this time. None of us will ever forget this day, yet we go forward to defend freedom and all that is good and just in our world.” – Former President George W. Bush on the night of 9/11

Listen to this week’s In the Public Interest as your hosts DaLyah Jones and Jacquelyn Carter Remember 9/11. This episode includes a story from Clayton Kelley, student perceptions of the tragedy and an in-studio interview with one of KTSW’s own Amberly Russell.

Jacquelyn Carter talked to Texas State students and their perceptions of 9/11. Many students on campus were in elementary school at the time but still remember the effects on their families and those around them.

KTSW’s public relations director and veteran Amberly Russell shares her experience of 9/11.

Clayton Kelley did a story on how 9/11 impacted media and student lives. Clayton spoke about how the event made 24 hour reporting prevalent and with the rise of smartphones news became instantaneous. The tragedy also affected the entire Texas State student body, and how everyone felt a connection to the event.
