This week will mark the one-year anniversary of the explosion at JJ's Restaurant on the Country Club Plaza in Kansas City, Mo.

As we look back, we want to know your memories of those tragic hours and days, and what has stayed with you.

Tell KCUR: Where were you when the explosion occurred? What about the tragedy sticks with you?

Whether you were a regular at JJ's or had never been, we want to know your thoughts as we remember the disaster that happened the night of Feb. 19, 2013.

We'll share your JJ's memories on the air and online Wednesday.
