Remembering 9/11- A Tribute to Those Who Gave Their Lives
I feel like I need to write this, and that even if you're not an American, you should still know what has happened to the beloved country on September 11, 2001.
For the full story, please, I beg you, go to this site and learn about the day that changed the United States of America.
On September 11, 2001, it was a normal morning like any other.
Then four planes were hijacked from Boston. The Twin Towers, AKA the World Trade Center, was filled with people from all places, coming to see the famous city known as New York.
Two of the hijacked planes intentionally crashed into those two buildings. Both towers collapsed within two hours.
The third plane crashed into the US Pentagon.
And the fourth plane, after passengers tried to take the plane out of the hands of a terrorist, crashed in Pennsylvania, preventing it from hitting our national capital, Washington D.C.
And now, my tribute to the 2,977 victims that died during the attack.
To the 246 victims that were on the planes:
You were brave. You contacted people, explaining what was happening. And to the members of the United Airlines Flight 19, I thank you all. Because you tried to take on the hijackers by yourselves, and saved our national monument from utter destruction.
To the workers in the North and South towers:
You were brave, as well. Many of you tried to get everyone else out before yourselves, and for that, everyone in this country is thankful.
And last, but certainly not least, to our police officers and firemen:
You put yourself last before others. Instead of fleeing the building, you all raced up the remaining staircases. We love you.
Sunday, September 11, 2011, is the tenth year after the destruction of the World Trade Center.
In May, 2011, Osama Bin Laden, leader of the Islamist Terrorists, was found, shot, and killed.
Our Country, and other Countries, need to know what happened that day.
I take my hat off to the victims of Semptember 11, 2001.
