On Tuesday, September 11th, 2001, terrorists from the terrorist group Al-Qaeda hijacked several planes and crashed two hijacked planes into the World Trade Center in New York City, New York and crashed another hijacked plane the Pentagon in Washington, District of Columbia.
Approximately 2,974 people were killed in total during the terrorist attacks; including 2,750 civilians and approximately 400 police officers and firefighters were killed when the Twin Towers at the World Trade Center collapsed; and approximately 184 people killed at the Pentagon in Washington, District of Columbia, including approximately 55 military personnel.
Terrorists also hijacked another plane, United Airlines Flight 93, to use on another attack, but their evil plans were prevented as brave men and women passengers and crew members fought the terrorist hijackers and prevented another terrorist attack.
United Airlines Flight 93 crashed into a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania killing all 40 people were killed aboard, passengers and crew members, on board the passenger plane.
May we all never forget the lives taken away and the heroes to helped to save lives during the terrorist attacks on 9/11, and may we always give thanks to all our emergency responders (firefighters, paramedics, law enforcement, emergency volunteer) and our military who are protecting lives and going after evil terrorists.
