On this week’s episode of “Tying It Together With Tim Boyum,” we share exclusive stories from September 11, 2001 as the state responded to what happened in NYC, Washington, D.C. and Pennsylvania.  We chat with former Governor Mike Easley and his top aides, who were charged with protecting the state and responding as the country went to war.  

We also talk to two state lawmakers who were inspired to enlist for active duty just days after the attack.  

Like all of us reflecting this week, Tim and Ben will share their own stories of where they were that day and their thoughts 20 years later.
