Remembering 9/11

World Trade Center

 
Today is the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks that used four hijacked planes, two of which brought down the World Trade Center, one of which resulted in damaging the Pentagon, and the last of which failed to reach its intended target when the passengers decided to fight back causing it to crash in Pennsylvania.

According to Wikipedia, the attacks resulted in 2,977 fatalities, over 25,000 injuries, and substantial long-term health consequences, in addition to at least $10 billion in infrastructure and property damage. It remains the deadliest terrorist attack in human history and the single deadliest incident for firefighters and law enforcement officers in the history of the United States, with 340 and 72 killed, respectively.

Let us bow our heads and remember and honor the memory of those who were lost that day.
