Everyone remembers where they were 13 years ago today, September 11, 2001.
WUIS' Sean Crawford was preparing for a typical day covering state government and politics at the capitol building. But as word of the terrorist attacks in New York spread, Illinois authorities made the rare decision to close state offices.
