We Will Never Forget

We Will Never Forget

September 11th, 2001.

Nearly every one of us remembers where we were and what we were doing 19 years ago, when we heard the news that planes had hit the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, and that a fourth had crashed in rural Pennsylvania.

New York City, before 2001

At 8:46 a.m. Flight 11 crashed into the North Tower.

At 9:02 a.m. Flight 175 crashed into the South Tower.

At 9:59 a.m. the South Tower collapsed.

At 10:48 a.m. the North Tower collapsed.

At 9:37 a.m. Flight 77 crashed into the Pentagon.

At 10:03 a.m. Flight 93 crashed in Somerset County, southeast of Pittsburgh.  

Today, we remember the nearly 3000 people who died that day, as a direct result of the attacks, and we remember and honor the police, firemen, and others who sacrificed their lives to help others that day.  

We will never forget.

We must never forget.

    Karen,

    you are absolutely correct. We must never forget. BECAUSE there are many “OTHERS” in the U.S. and World who want to transform (destroy) this great Nation we are privileged to live in.

    God Bless America!

      I totally agree, Farrel. We must remember all of our history. Thanks for writing!
