StoryCorps Presents: The Lasting Toll Of 9/11

This weekend the nation marks 20 years since 9/11 — a day we are reminded to never forget. But for so many people, 9/11 also changed every day after.

In this episode, a special collaboration between NPR and StoryCorps, we hear stories about the lasting toll of 9/11, recorded by StoryCorps in partnership with the National September 11 Memorial & Museum. You can learn more about that initiative and find out how you can record your reflections on the life of a loved one at storycorps.org/september11.

Also in this episode: the story of how an Afghan translator’s life was shaped by 20 years of conflict in his home country, culminating in a desperate attempt to help his family escape. Said Noor’s story first aired on Morning Edition and was originally produced by Steve Inskeep, Arezou Rezvani, and Danny Hajek. More here.

In participating regions, you’ll also hear a local news segment that will help you make sense of what’s going on in your community.
