A decade after the deadliest terrorist attack in American history, we look back to see what has changed as a result of 9/11 – and what changes might still be coming. Did 9/11 make us more assertive as a nation or more fearful? Did our response in Afghanistan and Iraq make us safer or more at risk? How did things change here in the United States? Are we more aware of the threat posed by terrorists or have we grown complacent about the danger? And what about the generation that grew up in the wake of 9/11 – today's college students? Are they different than their elders because of 9/11? Did 9/11 alter their world view in some unique way or does every generation experience a defining moment?
