Remembering 9/11

A NYC firefighter waits for water so he can cool off the smoldering remains of the World Trade Center.

It's been a decade since the events of September 11, 2001, when thousands of people died as terrorists hijacked planes and crashed them into the World Trade Towers, the Pentagon and a field in rural Pennsylvania.

Marcia Franklin talks with guests and viewers about how life has changed as a result of 9/11, with wars in two countries and increased security measures. Despite those changes, how much is 9/11 still on the minds of Americans?

Guests include: Rich Gorman, a Red Cross volunteer who served in mental health services at Ground Zero; Bill and Susan Mauk, who worked with victims and firefighters in New York; Said Ahmed-Zaid, a professor of engineering at Boise State University; and Richard Seamon, a professor at the University of Idaho Law School.
