Coming off the weekend marking the 20th anniversary of 9/11, we sit down and contemplate how the terrorist attack on U.S. soil affected how we move about our world.

In a new normal of airport screeners and homeland security, The Conversation talked to University of Hawaiʻi Urban and Regional Planning professor Karl Kim. He studies disasters and transportation, and directs the National Disaster Preparedness Training Center at UH. He spoke with us about the weaponization of planes and how that changed our lives.
