Today marks the 19th anniversary of the tragic events of September 11, 2001. Much like the Coronavirus the events of this day changed life as we know it, resulting in Heightened security, lack of trust, fear of traveling, changes on how we look at other people and finally broken hearts. For those of us impacted by this event, whether it is losing a loved one, having witnessed the disaster or grieving a loved one this day will never be forgotten.
For those of you who may not be aware of the event of September 11, 2001 below is a short synopsis from History.com
On September 11, 2001, 19 militants associated with the Islamic extremist group al Qaeda hijacked four airplanes and carried out suicide attacks against targets in the United States. Two of the planes were flown into the twin towers of the World Trade Center in New York City, a third plane hit the Pentagon just outside Washington, D.C., and the fourth plane crashed in a field in Shanksville, Pennsylvania. Almost 3,000 people were killed during the 9/11 terrorist attacks, which triggered major U.S. initiatives to combat terrorism and defined the presidency of George W. Bush.
Our thoughts and prayers are with those who lost their lives in the is tragic event, their families and loved ones. God Bless Them All.
