Never Forget 9/11

After 9 years, the world still remembers what happened on that dark Tuesday.  2,977 people lost their lives because of a direct attack on humanity. The world was silent, stunned and sympathetic. 27 Hijackers entered the U.S. to participate in the attack, even though only 19 ended up doing so – 17 died. A victory for terrorists, a tragedy for human kind. One must never forget those who lost their lives, and those who risked their lives to save their fellow men/women. The FDNY (Fire Department New York) immediately sent 200 units to the disaster area, brave men who gave their everything to find survivors – 343 died that day.

I was 12 when a friend of mine called and told me to switch on the TV; there was smoke coming off the Twin Towers, and people were jumping off. A terrifying sight, especially when I had visited the towers a year before. I will never forget what happened as I am sure no one else will. May the victims rest in peace, and may their loved ones remain strong. REMEMBER at http://www.911-remember.com/

  1. Yes I remember that day only too well. The live TV coverage, I will never forget. What was also amazing is how the world, the USA and NYC came together as one big family to help each other and later, to fight terrorism.
