For millions of Americans, December 7, 1941, is inextricably linked to the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. November 22, 1963, is instantly synonymous with John F. Kennedy’s assassination. Now, Americans must add one more date to the list of dark days indelibly etched in our minds and in our memories: September 11, 2001.
It is difficult to believe that so much time has passed — it seems like yesterday — since we heard those first unbelievable reports that a plane, then another plane, had crashed into the buildings of the World Trade Center. For a generation of students, the events that day — in New York City, Washington, D.C., and a field in Pennsylvania — are pivotal. Their impact will never be forgotten.
The anniversary of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, offers a time to remember, to reflect about this unforgettable moment in history, and to reconsider the effect that September 11 has had on our country and the world.
