Remembering 9/11/01

Its been 16 years since the attacks of September 11,2001. But the millions of Americans, haunting memories of that day are still fresh, and many lives were changed forever.  On 9/11 , terrorists hijacked four planes and were able to crash  two of them into the World Trade Center’s twin towers in New York and one into the Pentagon. The remaining jet crashed in Pennsylvania after passengers overpowered the hijackers. A day started out with clear blue skies ended with a mass of twisted, smoldering metal where the Twin Towers once stood, leaving 2977 people dead in New York, Virginia, and Pennsylvania, along with the 19 hijackers. September 11 happened almost two decades ago. One-quarter of Americans are too young to remember it. I have three  kids who have no memory of it at all- they weren’t born yet. But certainly dont want to forget , even as we get on with our lives and confront new challenges.
