Fifth-graders from Thorpe Gordon Grade School hang ribbons from trees outside classrooms in September 2001. The entire school made ribbons and wore red, white and blue today to show support for America. Those who were children when the 9/11 attacks took place may have different views of the events than those who were adults. (File photo)

Today’s youth still sorting through what attacks really mean
It’s been part of their lives for most of their lives. Children who were 5, 6, 7 years old on Sept. 11, 2001, have only vague memories of the attack on American soil, and yet the events of that day have made an impact on their lives, whether felt directly or indirectly.
