My initial reaction is the 9/11 is different from 11/22, but that's probably just because I remember the former and not the latter. People who remember JFK describe that day similarly - everyone remembers where they were, etc. Only difference I can think of is that 9/11 has always been known and remembered by its date. Everyone knows that JFK was assassinated, but people who weren't alive don't remember the date.
That's what I was thinking after I posted, but still no guarantees that 25 years from now it will be forgotten.
Considering that when Bin Laden was killed there was a flurry of "who is this bin-laden dude?" on Twitter.

I don't think it will be forgotten, it just won't remembered the same way as people who lived through the ordeal. Like with JFK, i know what happened, but i will never know what it was like to live through it.

An assassination of a President is not like a terror attack, no matter how big it is. Of course people who are into these things will always know about it, but the average teenager in America...

I think that while both events were different, they both affected the nation as a whole.

Ask anyone even older than CV (or Mutty :P) where they were 12/7/41 and you hear stories the same way we speak about 9/11.
Even I remembered the date and I wasn't born till about 50 yrs later.

That is why you can't compare the two. I was not born at the time (1941) of PH but I know all about it. Google is going to get a work out.

I guess it boils down to how much attention you paid in school.

Personally i like to know "random facts" in case i get pulled into a game show :)

True, but most young people would be hard pressed to tell you the date.

I guess so but it's still different than 9/11 in the sense that those attacks were known as Pearl Harbor (PCMIIW) not as the date 12/7.
The name of the terror attacks 13 yrs ago are known as the 9/11 attacks

People will always know the date of the 9/11 attack.
