11 years ago today – another Tuesday – that Tuesday morning that looked much like this Tuesday morning – sun shining, blue skies, fluffy clouds and airplanes…
I will never forget that day – that day that changed so much for so many…please don’t ever forget what happened that Tuesday morning 11 years ago.
That Tuesday morning...the day that suicide hijackers crashed two jets, American Airlines Flight 11 and United Airlines Flight 175, full of fuel, into the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center in NYC and another jet, American Airlines Boeing 757, Flight 77, crashed into the Pentagon in Virginia and a fourth jet, United Airlines 93, crashed in Pennsylvania.
They say that 2,993 people, including the hijackers, died in the attacks that Tuesday morning. Since then, many of the first responders an volunteers have died from cancers and other illnesses believed to be associated with breathing in the dust and debris that filled the air that Tuesday morning….and many are sick and dying even now.
Eleven years after that Tuesday morning, people of the world are still feeling the effects of that tragic day…we must never forget. I pray for those who lost loved ones that Tuesday morning and for all of those affected by the terrorist attacks – God Bless all of the families of those who lost their lives that day.
