It’s the eve of the 20th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks, and two things are striking: how vivid memories of the horror of that day remain for many, and just how much time has passed between then and now.

Arlington County held a 9/11 remembrance ceremony this morning in Courthouse, which can be viewed below.

We’re also re-posting a 2018 podcast interview we conducted with Justin Tirelli of the Arlington County Fire Department, about his memories of responding to the Pentagon on that fateful day.
