Saturday marks the 20th anniversary of the September 11th, 2001, terrorist attacks.

As part of WITF’s special 9/11 — 20 years later special programming, Smart Talk begins the week with a visit and broadcast from the Flight 93 National Memorial in western Pennsylvania.

Appearing on the program:
Stephen Clark, Superintendent of the National Parks of Western Pennsylvania shares details of the events as they unfolded on 9/11, as well as plans for the Flight 93 National Memorial.

Also joining the conversation is Patrick White, whose cousin Louis J. Nacke II was killed on Flight 93. White is very active in the Friends of Flight 93 family group and involved with the development of the Memorial site.

Finally, Kyle Kurchak is from nearby Saint Michael, Pa., and is a student at Pennsylvania Highlands Community College and he will contribute thoughts on how young Pennsylvanians view the events of 9/11 and how they shaped his perspective of our country, his community and the world.
