For the first time in more than a generation, America's young people are experiencing what it is like to be at war.

Our webcast came live from a school that saw in full view what was happening in Manhattan.

What will be the lasting impact on a generation of children growing up in a changed America? Will they feel safe the way their parents' generation did?
