Seventeen years ago Tuesdsay, far from Michiana, four planes were used as weapons in the most deadly terror attacks in American history.

Those events touched many lives in the immediate aftermath and the years since. As they become more distant, the concern is raised on how September 11th will be remembered by a younger generation of Americans.

Most high school students in America today do not have a living memory of the September 11 attacks.
