For one generation it was Pearl Harbor. For another, it was the day President Kennedy was shot. But the time that will be forever etched in the minds of the next generation is September 11, 2001 — the day terrorists crashed two airliners into the twin towers of the World Trade Center, another into the Pentagon, and brought a fourth down in flames in a field in Pennsylvania.
The thought on a lot of minds after that horrific day was that we would never be the same, that something in the American psyche changed along with the New York skyline.
Did it? We want to know what you think — what changed for you that day? As the Alan Jackson song goes, "Where were you when the world stopped turning, on that September day?"
