Where were you on 9/11?   

Pearl Harbor, JFK's assassination, September 11, 2001: Everybody has a story about where they were during these significant events because in a single day, a nation was suddenly changed by tragedy. For some, the terrorist attacks 10 years ago simply brought a more cumbersome process in security lines at airports while others are still wondering, "Where was God?"

In memory of the 10th anniversary of 9/11, we want to hear your story. Fill out our Reader Survey, and tell us where you were on that fateful day. How did it change you? Did it have an effect on your faith? Results of the survey will appear in our September 2011 issue. Order your copy today.
