Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

On Saturday, Sept. 11, the Austin Daily Herald will be printing a special supplement commemorating the 20th anniversary of the tragedy on Sept. 11, 2001, when terrorists hijacked four airliners and attacked America.

This horror resulted in the loss of thousands of American lives and toppled the Twin Towers in New York City. Americans haven’t forgotten the event and Saturday’s special section will look back at the terrible September day.

There will be stories and pictures of people telling recounting how it affected their lives and we want to ask you to do the same.
