Still image from Active Citizenship: Making A Difference

After the September 11, 2001 attack on the World Trade Center, volunteering and civic imvolvement surged as people focused on local and national community needs. Will it continue? Compares civic-mindedness after Pearl Harbor with that after 9/11. Highlights events since 1963 that contributed to lowered citizen involvement, but notes that today's young adults are becoming more engaged in community life and volunteerism. Reminds that citizenship is more than occasionally voting.
