911 – Never Forget

On September 11, 2001, when the two passenger aircraft, the American Airlines Boeing 767, Flight 11, and the Boeing 767, United Airlines Flight 175, flew directly into the World Trade Center  North Tower, and the second into the South Tower, the course of history shifted and America would be thrust into a long-term conflict with multiple terrorist organizations. The nearly 2,900 people who died in those buildings including first-responders who were trying to rescue them.  Both towers afire, burning debris covered the surrounding buildings and the streets below while hundreds jumped from the towers to their deaths in an attempt to escape. About 30 minutes later, a third plane, American Airlines Flight 77, crashed into the west side of the Pentagon near Washington, D.C. and a fourth plane, United Flight 93, crash-landed into a field in Pennsylvania killing all 40 souls on board. Today we take a moment to remember those who sacrificed their lives. New Jersey lost 749 souls in the attack — more than any state other than New York.
