Ten years ago four planes were hijacked by terrorists. Two hit the twin towers of the World Trade Center in New York. One crashed into the Pentagon. Aboard Flight 93, the passengers realized the plane they were aboard was about to become a weapon. They fought back.

The jetliner never reached the terrorists' intended target. It slammed into a former strip mine in Shanksville, Pa. All aboard the plane died. No one on the ground was injured. But for the residents of Shanksville, life would never be the same.

Three people describe how the events of Sept. 11, 2001 changed their lives.
