Today, we bring you a special issue of Compass. It’s dedicated to the 20th anniversary of 9/11, one of the saddest days in U.S. history. While the country mourns on this day, we at Fast Company look out our office windows at 7 World Trade Center and see where the very spot where the Twin Towers stood, today home to a poignant memorial. Together with people at the Pentagon and in Shanksville, Pennsylvania, we have a visual daily reminder of that tragic autumn morning.

But even for Americans who aren’t near terrorism sites, 9/11 resonates. According to a new exclusive Harris Poll conducted for Fast Company, 87% of people familiar with 9/11 consider it the most significant news event of the last 50 years. Among that swatch of respondents are 85% of those ages 18 to 34, which includes folks too young to remember that day—or weren’t even born yet. Read my story here.
