Season 4, Episode 6: Reflections on the 20th Anniversary of September 11, 2001


For students at Emmaus High School and around the country, the events of September 11, 2001, are history experienced through other's stories and images. Students rely on these recollections to gain perspective to the tragic events that rocked the country on that the day and the weeks after.
