It's one of those events that its hard to believe it happened 11 years ago, when at times it seems like only yesterday.
The terrorists attacks of September 11th, 2001.
Terrorists took control of commercial airliners, two being crashed into the World Trade Centers twin towers.
One plane targets the Pentagon in Washington, D.C.
Another headed for the nations capital is believed to have been taken over by passengers.
It crashed in a field in Pennsylvania.
Bluffton University Professor Perry Bush says that day may have been a turning point in this country and it's up to educators, government leaders and individuals to make a tragic, terrible day into something that makes us better people and a better country.
9-11 was one of those days you remember where you were and what you were doing that September morning.
Much like the Kennedy assassination or the Challenger space shuttle explosion.
Residents we talked with say the 9-11 attack changed us and this country forever.
More than 3-thousand people died 11 years ago Tuesday in the attacks.
