The terrorist attacks killed 2,977 people (count not including 19 terrorist hijackers), injured over 6,000 others, and caused at least $10 billion in infrastructure and property damage; the terrorist attacks committed on the World Trade Center in New York, the Pentagon in Washington DC, and an attempted terrorist attack plot aboard United Airlines Flight 93 that did not reach its hijackers’ intended target thanks to brave passengers and crew members who decided to mount an assault against the hijackers and wrest control of the aircraft.
United Airlines Flight 93 crashed in a field in Stonycreek Township, Pennsylvania, about 150 miles (240 km) northwest of Washington, D.C., killing all 33 passengers and 7 crew members (count not including the 4 terrorist hijackers).
We will all remember those whose lives were taken away on the day, and may we all give thanks to all of the firefighters, medical personnals, law enforcement personals, emergency volunteers and volunteer citizens who came to help those hurt in the terrorist attacks, and give thanks to all who served in our military to fight against evil terrorists and protect lives and freedoms. United We Stand Together After 9/11.
