CAPITAL REGION – Just about all Americans in their late 20s through their late 90s will possess some memories of Sept. 11, 2001.

Some were just children. Others were already senior citizens.

It was among America’s darkest days — the day four teams of terrorists hijacked airliners and crashed them into the Twin Towers of New York’s World Trade Center, the Pentagon in Washington, D.C., and — when passengers rebelled — into a field outside Shanksville, Pennsylvania.

Thousands died. Thousands were injured. Thousands of families were changed forever — and so was the United States.

To mark 20 years since 9/11, we spoke with many from around the region about their memories of that day and the days that followed. We also asked for readers to submit their memories  – and they did. Below, you’ll find in addition to our articles, the words of more than two dozen Gazette readers offering their recollections and remembrances.
