In the year 2002, George W. Bush proclaimed September the 11th “Patriot Day.” A year after the terrorist attack on the American people on Tuesday, September 11, 2001.
It is a day that changed the American peoples lives forever. 2,977 people were killed that day. Even if they are no longer with us, they are never forgotten.
The World Trade twin towers was once the tallest buildings in the world.
343 firefighters, 72 Law officers and 55 Military personal died that day.
December 13 2001, the US government releases a tape in which Osama bin Laden takes responsibility for the attacks.
Osama Bin Laden was killed almost 10 years later in 2011. The man responsible for the attack on 9/11.
September 11 was international day of peace, but now known as the day that changed the world.
4 commercial passanger aircrafts were hijacked and used on the attacks on 9/11. 3 hit targets ( two hit the World Trade center and one hit the Pentagon) and one crashed in Pennsylvania before it can reach it’s destination.
Some conspiracy theorists believe that members of the U.S. government orchestrated the 9/11 attacks, but a bipartisan commission found al-Qaeda completely responsible for the attacks, and Osama bin Laden also maintained that he and the rest of al-Qaeda were responsible.
Rescue and recovery clean-up of the 1.8 million tons of wreckage from the WTC site took 9 months.
Approximately $40 billion in insurance losses, making it one of the largest insured events ever.
The hijackers were Islamic terrorists from Saudi Arabia and several other Arab nations. There was a total of 19 hijackers.
Let’s take a moment of silence to honor the lives lost on this horrific attack of terror that took so many lives and altered the world forever.
The attacks of September 11th were intended to break our spirit. Instead we have emerged stronger and more unified. We feel renewed devotion to the principles of political, economic and religious freedom, the rule of law and respect for human life. We are more determined than ever to live our lives in freedom.
