Segment 1On this day of remembrance and reflection we will look at how the terror attacks of ten years ago reached beyond New York and Washington. We start with the story of a Utah man who watched the horrors of the attacks that morning as he was on his way to work.

Mark Johnson, of Bountiful, was living and working in New York at the time. At 9 a.m. Johnson exited the subway station in the shadow of the twin towers and quickly discovered that something was very wrong.

Watch his interview above.
