Ten years have passed since the attacks of 9/11 and local residents directly affected by those events speak out in a special Eye on Our Community this Sunday with Laura Diaz at 6:30 p.m. on CBS2. Diaz also talks to the head of counter terrorism for LAPD, Deputy Chief Michael Downing about future attacks. The CBS2 anchor takes a moment to talk to local high school students about how they see the world growing up since 9/11.

Kevin Danni of South Pasadena talks about how he survived the attacks at the World Trade Center. Rancho Santa Margarita’s Tom Frost shares the life of his daughter he lost in the second plane that hit the Towers and the global support he has received honoring her memory. Brad Burlingame reveals what he has learned of his brother’s death as the pilot of the plane that hit the Pentagon.

    Laura’s special on 9/11 was one of the best I have seen all day. It was so honest and touching. We need more pieces like this in Los Angeles – significant stories that make a difference. Why on earth would you let Laura Diaz leave the station? She is such a great journalist. It is LA’s loss. At least she left us with a phenomenal tribute.
