Where were you when the world stopped turning? 9/11/01

Remembering Tuesday, September 11, 2001

2,993 people, including the hijackers, died in the attacks

Early on the morning of  Tuesday, September 11, 2001, nineteen highjackers took control of four commercial airliners en route to San Francisco and Los Angeles from Boston, Newark, and Washington, DC.  At 8:46 a.m., American Airlines Flight 11 was crashed into the World Trade Center’s North Tower, followed by United Airlines Flight 175 which hit the South Tower at 9:03 a.m. Another group of hijackers flew American Airlines Flight 77 into the Pentagon at 9:37 a.m. A fourth flight, United Airlines Flight 93, whose ultimate target was thought to be either the United States Capitol or White House, crashed near Shanksville, Pennsylvania at 10:03 a.m, after the passengers on board engaged in a fight with the hijackers.

The south tower (2 WTC) fell at approximately 9:59 a.m., after burning for 56 minutes in a fire caused by the impact of United Airlines Flight 175. The north tower (1 WTC) collapsed at 10:28 a.m., after burning for approximately 102 minutes.

The United States and even the world have not been the same since the terrorist attacks on Sept.11/01, it was a day that many will never forget,nor should we.

God Bless all of the families of those who lost their lives that day.
