Some events are so powerful that every detail becomes permanently etched into the minds of people who experienced them. Their stories are re-told to every generation, because they must never be forgotten. One of the most cataclysmic and unforgettable moments in American history began on the quiet morning of September 11, 2001.
People across the United States woke up that day and heard the terrifying news that four commercial airliners had been hijacked. American Airlines Flight 11, United Airlines Flight 175, American Airlines Flight 77 and United Airlines Flight 93 were all under terrorist control. We waited to hear the hijacker’s demands, but it wasn’t long before the devastating truth behind their mission was revealed.
