Twenty years ago Saturday, the world changed.
People in the United States and around the world watched in shock and horror as terrorists hijacked airliners and crashed them into the World Trade Center Twin Towers in New York, the Pentagon in Washington and a fourth plane, believed to be targeting the White House or U.S. Capitol, crashed near Shanksville, Pennsylvania, after passengers and crew heroically overcame the hijackers.
And people watched the bravery and selflessness of the emergency responders who worked to fight the damage and save people not directly killed in the attacks.
