We all know what happened 6 years ago today. The incidents of Sept. 11, 2001 will be defining for our generation. When I was small everyone knew where they were when President Kennedy was shot. I always felt left out, because I didn't know where I was when that happened. I was only two years old.
For a while January 28, 1986 held some of this power as nearly everyone could remember where they were when the Space Shuttle Challenger exploded. September 11 has overshadowed all of these dates.
