Coming of Age in a Post-9/11 World
We continue our 9/11 conversation with a look at what it means for a generation to come of age in a post 9/11 world. We’re joined by three teens who were all five or six years old on September 11, 2001. Today we’ll hear from them about the unique challenges they have faced and how their world view differs from those whose lives not been so singularly shaped by 9/11 and its aftermath.
Nickie Cheung, Amal Cheema, and Aashna Narang are all member of Youth LEAD-- Youth Leaders Engaging Across Differences. They are all entering their junior year at Sharon High School in Sharon, Mass. We will also be joined by Janet Penn, executive director of Youth LEAD.
