September 11, 2001


On February 26, 1993, a rumbling sensation stopped the bustling borough of Manhattan.  Minutes later, the New York Police Department, the New York Fire Department, and ambulances from multiple hospitals arrived as tourists, workers staff and onlookers evacuated the seven-building complex known as the World Trade Center.  Six people died in the explosion.  The towers were suspected to collapse for the explosion occurred in the parking garage below the complex; but the towers stood tall and triumphant.  People went on with their lives and the day was forgotten.

Months later, all of the activists of the notorious terrorist group, Al Qaeda, had been found and the mastermind of the bombing captured and sentenced to life in prison.  While the terrorist was being escorted from the courtroom, he exclaimed, “The next time, they will come down!”  The statement spooked the media, press, and city officials, including the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, who control the World Trade Center. They never expected the horrifying event that occurred eight years later. 

On the morning of September 11, 2001, at 8:46 AM, American Airline Flight 175 crashed into the North Tower of the World Trade Center in New York City.  The crash was followed by three more crashes along other national landmarks.  The day was mourned by the loved ones, friends, and family of those who perished.  The day, known as 9/11, will forever be known as the time foreign terrorists attacked the United States of America.
