The University of Connecticut remembers Sept. 11 

If there is a single defining event for the United States in the 21st century, that event would be the Sept. 11 attacks on the World Trade Center in New York City and the Pentagon in Arlington County, Virginia. The attacks claimed the lives of 2,977 innocent people and injured over 6,000 others. It is almost impossible to properly measure the full impact of the attacks, as their repercussions have been felt throughout the world in the ensuing War on Terror and America’s change in foreign and domestic policy.
