It was 11 years ago, at the moment this piece is being published (8:46 a.m.), that our lives changed forever.
It was 8:46 a.m. on Sept. 11, 2001 when a hijacked airplane crashed into the north tower of the World Trade Center, beginning one of the saddest chapters of American history.
Much like the assassination of John F. Kennedy a generation earlier, the events of 9/11 will never be forgotten by those who experienced them.
Patch would like to know where you were and what you were doing when you heard the news that America was under attack. Please share your personal memories of that day in the comments section below.
