It has been 11 years since the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

The incident changed many procedures about U.S. security, air travel and even football games.

AP said this may be the turning year however, and a time to move forward from the past decade of remembrance.

Winchester  on the Town Common last year. Poetry, scripture readings and church bells were used to honor the significant anniversay.

While people across the country still commemorate today in a variety of ways including school events, candlelight vigils, community gatherings and flags flown at half-staff, we want to know what you remember about the day.

I was at home, celebrating the positive pregnancy test that I had taken that morning when this happened. It was one of the biggest roller coaster day for my feelings. I somehow still associate a tiny part of my daughter to that fateful day.

I bet that was a crazy day for you, and an odd one to remember as well. I always associate my personal life with national events. It's easier for me to remember both. Congrats on your daughter though :)

Thanks, Lindsey! I have pictures of the twin towers standing proudly as well as the reflection pools that now show the vaccum in NY's skyline from my visits to that place. I would like to share these with the Patch. I will email them to you later today and would like to see them published.
