On Sept. 12, the day after our sense of security was shattered, reporter Alex Tizon and photographer Alan Berner ventured out to chronicle what connects us, and what keeps us apart in their "Crossing America" series. Now, we continue our journey in a collection of reported "postcards." We invite you along, and hope you'll drop us a note in return.

The open road has
long defined America. It brings us together and keeps us apart. We
travel it with independence and purpose.
Following the Sept. 11 attacks, reporter Alex Tizon and
photographer Alan Berner took to the road to cross an America facing
a new day. These are their reports.
21: Our nation is shaken, but not into pieces
parade is drawn to the place where nation changed
Glory fills one field, grim task fills another
need to pray deep'
can't give the word fast enough for restless cadets
of ideas waged in one man's head
Oklahoma City, they know how it feels
a world away from Kansas
Collins' 'gun people' are stocking up
family feels at home in Wyoming town
dissent out there, flickering in the shadows
ladies do what we can'
talk, tears, on trail to New York
drive to understand how country has changed
