Remembering 9/11: Never Forget

Today is the 21st Remembrance of 9.11.2001. A day most of us will never forget. A day we cannot erase from our memories. It was an extremely devasting time in American history. It seems like the event occurred just yesterday instead of twenty-one years ago today.

What was this horrendous event? it was an extremely well planned out terrorist attack against America. This is the day we remember the loss of both of the Twin Towers and the devastating loss of nearly three thousand (3,0000) people. A good percentage of us were working our normal day when the tragic news of the hijacked airplanes colliding into the Twin Towers occurred.

What, I think, A lot of people remember about 9/11 is the tragedy that occurred in New York and the collapse of The Twin Towers. Let us not forget that on that day two other targets were targeted as well. American Airlines Flight 77 was one of two other Airplanes that were hijacked. It was hijacked by five Saudi men affiliated with al-Qaeda. The plane was deliberately crashed into the Pentagon in Arlington County, Virginia, near Washington D.C… All Sixty-four (64) people on board (six crew and themselves included) and an additional One Hundred Twenty-Five (125) who were in the building.

Let us not forget there was still another airplane that was hijacked on that tragic day, 9/11. United Airlines Flight 93 was hijacked by four al-Qaeda terrorists on board as a preplanned part of the September 11 attacks. The difference with this particular Flight is that the brave crew and passengers fought back. Flight 93 was destined to fly into the Capitol building. Due to the heroic efforts of those on board that did not happen. Instead, it was crashed into an open field located near a wooded area in Stonycreek Township, Somerset County, Pennsylvania. All Forty-four (44) people on board including crew and the hijackers were killed. Let us never forget the brave heroes that sacrificed their lives to save many more on the ground.

Have we learned anything from the events of this horrific day? Hopefully we have. Our country has become a stronger nation. The terrorists wanted to destroy the United State of America. Quess what, they didn’t succeed. We are a united people, who all love this country and unite together whenever there is a need.

I hope you were able to take time out of your busy day to remember the tragic events that occurred on 9/11 twenty-one (21) years ago. Strive to Never Forget those we lost, the survivors whose lives were forever changed, and the courage demonstrated by the many first responders as well as the everyday heroes. I will never forget the horrendous events of 9/11. Watching on live television as the airplanes collided into the Twin Towers. I will never forget the lives that were lost on that fateful day. Remember Always and Never Ever Forget.

God Bless. Thank You! I appreciate y’all.
