USAT | Video: How has 9/11 changed America?

In a series of more than 50 videos, USA Today asks Americans -- from regular folks to celebrities -- about their memories of Sept. 11, and how the attack changed America.

Among those interviewed: then-New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who says in his video: "Before Sept. 11, we were living in a bit of a dream world" about the threat of terrorism. "It made us much more realistic about what we're facing."

The series, which marks Sept. 11's 10th anniversary, includes a tool inviting readers to record their own video.

What's the best Sept. 11 anniversary project -- in editorial or advertising -- that you've seen so far? Please post your replies in the comments section, below. To e-mail confidentially, write jimhopkins[at]gmail[dot-com]; see Tipsters Anonymous Policy in the rail, upper right.


  1. Of course USA Today would interview Rudolph "Like in Adolf" Giuliani. The liberal media treated him like a king while he sicced the NYPD on anything he did not like. Nobody remembers it now, but after 9/11 he wanted to suspend the city charter and proclaim himself mayor-for-life.

    The irony is that the World Trade Center went down on the morning of a citywide primary to replace Giuliani. He was going to be out due to term limits and the sooner New Yorkers were rid of this neofascist bully the better.
