11 Years Ago Today

Let’s take a moment to reflect what happened eleven years ago on this very day at this very moment on September 11, 2001. An airplane, American Airlines Flight 11, crashed into the North Tower of the World Trade Center in New York. Than another airplane, United Airlines Flight 175 crashes into the South Tower on live television. To make matters worse, American Airlines Flight 77 crashes into the Pentagon in Arlington. Back in New York, the South Tower crashes to the ground in a massive bloom of toxic dust and smoke. Meanwhile, passengers on United Airlines Flight 93 fight back against the terrorists. United Airlines Flight 93 crashed into a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania, Than the North Tower disintegrates in a huge acrid and toxic dust and smoke cloud. Once it was all over at 10:28 AM, 3,000 people lost their lives and untold numbers were injured and many have been sickened from the toxic dust and smoke of the collapsing World Trade Center. For the next four days, everyone was glued to the television watching news coverage of the 9/11 Terrorist Attacks. It brought the world together in grief and unity. There would be many memorial and funeral services. September 11, 2001 is a day that will live infamy and we will all remember that horrible day as long as we live. Never forget 9/11.
