water cooler logoToday is the 9th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 attacks and we are as divided a nation as ever.

For weeks there has been a huge debate over the construction of a Muslim Community Center (a.k.a The Ground Zero Mosque) located blocks from "Ground Zero." And in recent days, Florida Reverend Terry Jones has become the latest "15 minute celebrity" over his decision to hold a mass koran burning at his Florida church on Saturday September 11th.

Americans are fed up with unemployment. President Obama's promises to rescue the nation from the abyss created by George W. Bush has all but failed in the majority of Americans' eyes according to the latest polls. 

The Tea Party (uknown a year and a half ago) is now a viable growing political movement.

But yet tomorrow Americans will all agree on one thing, that September 11 marks the day when the cold, harsh reality of terrorism bit us on our collective posteriors. Sure, there was the World Trade Center bombing in 1993 and the Oklahoma City Bombing in 1995, but the September 11, 2001 attacks marked the largest attack upon Americans since Pearl Harbor. This type of event was something we read about in a history book or experienced in a movie, but on 8:47 morning our nation changed and was never the same. I myself will never forget where I was at that moment. I was fresh out of college and working in the shop with some co-workers listening to the nHoward Stern Show. He was in the middle of a conversation, then news broke and Howard Stern stayed on the air until 12:30 in the afternoon that day. Howard was phenomenal that day. 

What follows are a series of incredible slideshows, videos, and photos we found, which covered that fateful day.
