September 11 and Young People

Hosted by

In the days after 9/11, Americans felt a sense of national unity unseen since World War II. Within six months, it was gone, except among the Middle Class young. Members of what's called the "9/11 Generation" are still more politically aware, socially conscious and plugged in than their parents. That's also true in countries now experiencing the so-called "Arab Spring," for very different reasons. We look at causes and consequences today.
