Remembering 9/11


On September 11, Patriot Day gives us time to reflect on the devastating terror attacks that took nearly 3,000 lives.

This year marks the 22nd anniversary of 9/11.

Join people all across the United States as they observe a moment of silence and pause to remember at each of the following times:

  • 8:46 a.m.: Hijackers deliberately crashed American Airlines Flight 11 into floors 93 through 99 of the North Tower
  • 9:03 a.m.: Hijackers deliberately crashed United Airlines Flight 175 into floors 77 through 85 of the South Tower
  • 9:37 a.m.: Hijackers deliberately crashed American Airlines Flight 77 into the Pentagon, near Washington, D.C
  • 9:59 a.m.: The South Tower collapsed
  • 10:03 a.m.: After learning of the other attacks, passengers on United Airlines Flight 93 launched a counterattack on hijackers aboard their plane to try to seize control of the aircraft. In response, the hijackers crashed the plane into an empty field near Shanksville, Pa
  • 10:28 a.m.: The North Tower collapsed, leaving the 16-acre World Trade Center site in ruins and collateral damage affecting all adjacent properties and streets. The rescue effort commenced immediately

Today, reflecting and remembering the events that took place in 2001 reminds people of the sensitivity of time and the importance of standing united as a nation.

While I was looking for some statistics about 9/11 here are some interesting numbers I came across:

  • 2977 – The number of innocent lives lost on 9/11
  • 343 – The number of lives lost on 9/11 who were New York City firefighters
  • 23 – the number of lives lost on 9/11 who were NYPD officers
  • 37 – The number of lives lost on 9/11 who were police officers from the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey
  • 19 – The number of terrorists who hijacked the planes on 9/11
  • 60% – The percentage of victims of the 9/11 attacks whose remains have been identified
  • 3:1 – The ratio of men to women who died
  • 184 – The number of people killed when American Airlines Flight 77 crashed into the Pentagon
  • 36,000 – The units of blood donated to the New York Blood Center on 9/11
  • 300 – The number of firefighters on leave for respiratory problems from 9/11 by January 2002

9/11 will forever be the day that rocked America’s core, changing lives, security measures and so much more for the people of the United States of America.

    GOD bless America,
    Everyone in this country needs to stop and think of the ones that have died in our pursuit of freedom and happiness.
    Help to STOP the critical decline we are presently headed, in the memory of the lives lost in 2011 and the ones that fought for US.

          Perhaps you should channel your witty comments into something that actually makes sense as opposed to your sad attempts to be intelligent.

    Well paper’s out, cat’s out of the bag. The people who intentionally caused harm the whole thing went though.
    It’s to bad that you know. Granny Franny isn’t here. I have noticed how that it be, many people trying to destroy pictures or change pictures in an attempt to still cover up what they did. But it’s too bad because I have one of the most glorified pictures still on file. But yes, we have to pay the banks back. Now all that money you stole and everything yall have done since the 911 starts tomorrow. On 9-12-2024.

          Such as anybody that believes a plane hit the pentagon.

            A missile hit the pentagon. People that were there said it was not an airplane. If anyone has ever been to the Pentagon, they would know there is no way an airplane could have hit at ground level. Oh and it just so happens 2.3 trillion dollars went missing from the Pentagon as announced by Donald Rumsfeld the day before.
