On the morning of September 11, 2001, four planes were hijacked used to crash into three important buildings in the United States. There were 3,000 casualties and many more were injured. The planes that were used were probably chosen because of the extra fuel needed for their original flights to California. They were taken over by 19 muslims armed with boxcutters and plastic knives.
The attacks were supposedly Bin Laden’s fault. He was the founder of the Al-Qaeda muslim group. He was born in Saudi Arabia and came from a wealthy family. He declared war on the United States on August 23, 1996. He organized and funded the attacks on September 11. He was killed in Pakistan on May 2, 2011.
The first plane was seized and was flown into the North tower of the World Trade Center in New York City at 8:46 am. The second plane was crashed into the South tower of the World Trade Center just over fifteen minutes later, at 9:03 am. This resulted in the collapse of both the towers and many deaths.
The third plane was flown into the west side of the Pentagon at ground level at 9:37 am. What’s funny is that 2.3 trillion dollars had disappeared from the Pentagon the day before and the plane flew into the side that had all the records and evidence, destroying it all.
The fourth plane was hijacked but the passengers overcame the hijackers. The passengers didn’t know how to operate the plane and crashed in Pennsylvania with no survivors.
Many are skeptical of the whole story and believe that the whole thing was a government plot. There are many reasons to believe that too. Many of the facts do not line up and there are many things unexplained that the government may have covered up.
People recognize this day nationwide and remember and honor those who died as a result. This day is a great example of how America’s spirit, in times of trouble, shows stronger than ever instead of being broken.
