Twenty years ago, a group of 19 terrorists hijacked four commercial flights in the United States and crashed them into prominent sites including the World Trade Centre and the Pentagon, sparking the War on Terror which has claimed at least 900,000 lives.
Two decades on, life remains changed forever, for everyone.
The Quicky speaks to an Australian woman who worked in a New York City hospital that day helping the injured, and a prominent anti-racism advocate about why none of our lives have been, or will ever be the same again.
