As difficult as it is for most Americans to believe, for almost every elementary school student Sept. 11, 2001, is as intangible an event as Pearl Harbor is to those of us born after that infamous day in 1941. Like many of you, I learned about Pearl Harbor in school. I have visited the USS Arizona memorial in Hawaii, but Dec. 7, 1941, affects me differently than it does my grandparents who lived the aftermath on Dec. 8, who listened to President Roosevelt speak over their radio, and whose friends and family left home to fight in a foreign land.
