Social Spotlight: Remembering Sept. 11

It's a day Americans never will forget, because it's a day that changed so many lives. The images of Sept. 11, 2001 were seared into the memory by a nation's worth of televisions all tuned to the pictures of the World Trade Center towers burning, and everyone always will remember how they first heard the news that America was under attack.

Today is the 14th anniversary of the September 11th attacks, when two hijacked passenger jets hit the World Trade Center towers in New York City, a third was flown into the Pentagon, and a fourth that was taken over by heroic passengers and crashed in a field in Shanksville, Pa., about 80 miles from Pittsburgh, before it could reach the intended target.

Steelers players, like all Americans, will never forget that day or the brave men and women who died that day.
