Watch Sunday, September 11, 2016 at 2pm on WMHT-TV

Ordinary things in homes and museums take on new meaning through association with people and experiences. OBJECTS AND MEMORY examines items recovered after, or offered in response to, 9/11, the Oklahoma City bombing and the Vietnam War, along with the stories of people who find these items important. With narration by Frank Langella and music by Philip Glass, the program reveals how, in times of stress, we come together in community and see otherwise ordinary objects as symbols of identity, memory and aspiration.

The monumental building that was supposed to last forever was destroyed after 53 years.
