Students born after 9/11 attacks gain perspective about a tragic day in American history

It's been 18-years since thousands of lives were lost in the 9/11 attacks on America. It's a day many of us will never forget, except for those who weren't alive to see it.

Most of us remember the exact moment we learned the towers were hit, but that's not the case for students at Robinson Middle School because they weren't born yet. It may not be in the curriculum to talk about 9/11, but social studies teacher Michele Rowley says it's important to inform a new generation about a day that should never be forgotten.

Aside from talking about 9/11, the students were asked to interview someone who was alive when the attacks happened so they could get a first-hand viewpoint.

FOX Kansas News reporter Tiffany Lane visited with the teacher and students and you can see that report in the video posted above.
