Images from Flight 93 Crashed near Shanksville, PA
“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.”
To read this lead story on History.com and may others about what happened on this day 18 years ago just click here Nations Around the World Mourn Yes I could quote articles from many different sources about this day but I could only handle reading some of the articles from this source before I started feeling the pain, confusion, and mourning of this day 18 years ago. If you wish to read other sources here is the general search link I used Google General Search for 9/11/2001
Do you remember where you were when American Airlines Flight # 11 hit the North Tower of the World Trade Center better know as the Twin Towers at 8:46 AM ET ? Then came United Flight # 175 flying into the South Tower at 9:03 AM ET. Do you remember where you were than? Next was American Airlines Flight number 77 that flew into the Pentagon at 9:45 AM ET. DO you remember what you were thinking about when this third plane tried to take out the USA’s center of all military operations? The last plane to crash that surreal day was in a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania at 10:10 AM ET the brave men and women after hearing about the other planes tried to take back control of Flight 93. The misled devotees of Osama bin Laden crashed the plane into a field just to keep control of this plane that investigators that was headed for the USA capitol in Washington D. C. or Camp David, a presidential retreat, in Maryland. This was the only flight where the only casualties were the brave people aboard the plane. Do you remember what you were doing or thinking than? I light 1 white taper candle at the time that each of the airplanes were use as a weapon to attack the USA by a terrorist organization.
For those of us in the USA the air was quite when then President George W. Bush grounded of all flights into and out of the USA until further notice, Most of us were in shock not only from the attack but the fact that we could look up and not see any type of plane or helicopter in the air for the first time in the history of airplanes taking passengers all over the world. I remember thinking, “This is how peaceful the air was for birds before the first plane ever flew.” Which may seem like a strange thought but waiting to find out if relatives of mine had made it out of the South Tower or not I had to turn my mind towards nature just to allow myself to think at all without screaming.
Thank the gods and goddesses my family did not lose the life of a loved one that day but to this day they are different people than who they were before the attack suffering from PTSD and survivors guilt one took their own life on the 10 year remembrance day of the attack that took so many of their friends. I refuse to call all the September 11ths after the horrific one in 2001 an anniversary because anniversaries are suppose to recall a day that something happy happened such as a wedding or your first kiss, etc. If anyone reading this lost someone to death or mental illness or physical disability on September 11, 2001 or as a direct result from this date if you feel you can please share your friend or love ones name in the comment section. If you want to add anything else about the person please do I for one would like to know more about the person behind the name who was needlessly sacrificed by the terrorist either here or in the military. Also remember the animals that have given their lives searching the World Trade Center Towers and in foreign lands. Many gave their lives so their human could be safe.
I ask each and everyone of reading this post to please take time out of your busy day to remember those that perished on this day and the families and friends left behind also all the military personal and their family and friends who died fighting in a foreign land hopefully keep our country safe from another terrorist attack on our soil. All these people deserve the honor of us remembering them and the sacrifices made on September 11, 2001. The Ancient Egyptians believed that as long as a persons name was not forgotten and spoke out loud they were still alive in the underworld. Following is the list of names for all of those who were sacrificed on that surreal, horrible day 18 years ago. Please randomly pick out names from the almost 3,000 and say them out loud during the time you take today to remember the honored dead along with their families and friends. Keep in mind that these people came from my nationalities, religions, and cultures. Some I am sure were our pagan brothers and sisters. Also, try to remember as hard as it maybe that the families who did not know their child was a terrorist have to live with the shame of what their child did to other peoples children. I ask you to please say a prayer for the innocent family members of the 19 terrorist that came to our country to try and destroy much more then just our way of life these innocent people need comfort also.
