In this special September 11th edition of WUKY's award winning history series Saving Stories, Doug Boyd, director of UK Libraries' Nunn Center for Oral History shares an interview  he conducted with Kentucky native Janet Foushee. She was working as a flight attendant on the morning of September 11, 2001 and recalls how and when she found out about the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and the crash of Flight 93 in Shanksville, Pennsylvania. The entire account is featured in the Nunn Center's The Wisdom Project podcast.
