It may be hard to believe, but there are kids in school who don't know about the September 11th attacks.

Teens in Jody Cabble's class at Henry Clay High School learned about them Tuesday.

Most of them were three or four years old when it happened, and don't remember anything.
Everything they've learned has been from second-hand accounts: teachers, parents, or textbooks.
The students know the significance of the event, but say they don't have the same emotional attachment as someone who remembers it.

"They're much more distant or much more removed from it than the students that were actually there watching it with me that day," said Cabble.

The kids watched a documentary about September 11th, then held a 'Warrior's Walk'--a walk to remember the fallen--after school.
