9/11 Memorial Post

“Today we’ve had a national tragedy. Two airplanes have crashed into the World Trade Center in an apparent terrorist attack on our country.” –President Bush, September 11, 2001.

“On September 11, 2001, beginning at about 8:45 in the morning, a series of terrorist attacks destroyed the twin towers of the World Trade Center and severely damaged the Pentagon. The disaster is so great that in New York we have as yet, two days later, only guesses about how many thousands of people perished when the WTC towers collapsed. Commercial airliners were hijacked and flown directly into the three buildings. The first crashed into the North tower at 8:45, and about 18 minutes later the second airliner hit the South tower. At about 9:40, a third airliner crashed into the Pentagon. At about 9:58, the South tower collapsed, followed by the North tower at 10:28.” — Roger Nelson, Director, GCP

Does everyone remember what they were doing when September 11 happened. The only reason i am writing this post is because i was watching a documentary on the American United Flight 93 that was hi jacked and crashed into an open field in Pennsylvania. The movie was called United 93.

Ever since this on September 11 2001 it has become a very close issue to me and i am always looking to read more into the issue even after 5 and a half years has gone. Here is a permanent online Memorial to all those who lost there lives on that terrible day.

Here is a summery of the Victims involved in the Terrorist Attacks

A time line from the 11th of September to the 30th of September shows exactly what happened and the lead up to the war in Afghanistan.

When the plane hit the World Trade Center there was a face that was seen from the smoke, take a look and tell me what you think
