The twin towers of the World Trade Center burn behind the Empire State Building in New York, Sept. 11, 2001. In a horrific sequence of destruction, terrorists crashed two planes into the World Trade Center causing the twin 110-story towers to collapse.

Saturday will mark 7,300 days since four hijacked planes became weapons of mass destruction, curtailing thousands of lives and shattering America’s sense of invincibility and impenetrability.

For a generation of students, the tragic events of 9/11 and its aftermath unfolded before they were born or old enough to understand what happened.

Today on All Sides with Ann Fisher, reflections on 9/11 on the 20th anniversary, and a look at how schools teach the topic.
