The attacks of 9/11 left a permanent mark on the psyche of the American people. For those who were in middle or high school, or just starting college in 2001, their lives and worldviews were changed by 9/11 in a way that no other event could compare during these formative years.
“Growing Up 9/11″ tells the story of some of the young men and women who will soon become the leaders of our country. The video asks the 15- to 30-year-olds who currently make up 30 percent of our nation: What did 9/11 mean to you? From the career paths they choose to the media they consume, this generation’s views on 9/11 and the impact it had on them will shape our society and our policies over the next few decades.
