We Will NEVER Forget

18 Years Ago Today, September 11, 2001...The World Stopped.

- 8:46 a.m. ET - American Airlines Flight 11 (traveling from Boston to Los Angeles) strikes the north tower of the World Trade Center in New York City.
- 9:03 a.m. ET - United Airlines Flight 175 (traveling from Boston to Los Angeles) strikes the south tower of the World Trade Center in New York City.
- 9:37 a.m. ET - American Airlines Flight 77 (traveling from Dulles, Virginia, to Los Angeles) strikes the Pentagon Building in Washington.
- 9:59 a.m. ET - South tower of WTC collapses in approximately 10 seconds.
- 10:03 a.m. ET - United Airlines Flight 93 (traveling from Newark, New Jersey, to San Francisco) crashes in a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania.
- 10:28 a.m. ET - North tower of WTC collapses. The time between the first attack and the collapse of both World Trade Center towers is 102 minutes.

2,977 people lost their lives that day due to these horrific, senseless, and unspeakable attacks...

As we remember the tragic day 18 years ago that changed our lives forever, please take time to say a prayer for those that have paid the ultimate sacrifice, for those that lost family members on 9/11, for our military, and for our country. We Will NEVER Forget! ❤️💙

God Bless America, and ALL those who defend her... The Land of the Free, BECAUSE of the Brave.

    1. You are so very welcome, Dawn! This is a day that should NEVER be forgotten, and in today's climate it seems as if some are trying to pretend as if it never happened, or at least they are refusing to acknowledge it publicly. I was quite surprised and saddened to see how many on American social media forums just went about the day without even one mention of it.
