Almost 10 years have passed since the September morning when planes hijacked by terrorists were used to kill nearly 3,000 people on the East Coast.

Whether you were in New York, Washington, D.C., back here in the Pacific Northwest and Clark County, or elsewhere, the events of Sept. 11, 2001, likely altered your life and the lives of those around you.

Wars, heightened airport security and a shifting political landscape are just a few of the changes that have swept over American culture in wake of those events.

How did that day change your life? What are your thoughts or memories about the attacks? We want to hear your stories for our upcoming coverage.
