My mom told me a story about the day before, right before she was moving away from New Jersey ( right on the edge of New York City ) she wanted to take a picture of the skyline but forgot her camera, she thought, it'll be there tomorrow. All that was there the next day was smoke from the towers, Absolutely wild...😕
On September 11, 2011, there were unprecedented terrorist attacks made by al-Qaeda. They were directed against the government. At around 9:00, a plane hijacked by al-Qaeda crashed into the North World Trade Tower. At first, people didn't know it was a terrorist attack. But then, a second plane hit the South World Trade tower. Some people thought it was still just an accident, but most people knew it was an attack. Then, the 2 buildings collapsed after 1 hour and 42 minutes. Then, a third plane hit the Pentagon, the home for defense in the United States. Then, there was a fourth and final plane. People don't know whether they were heading for the capitol building (they're both in the same direction, but it would be disastrous for the US anyway). All we know is that brave passengers took back control of the plane (because of a voicemail a husband left his wife) and redirected it to an empty field in Philadelphia. 2,996 people (including the hijackers) died that day in those planes. I take my hat off for them.

I respect that the creator was trying to arouse respect for this tragic incident but I firmly oppose the usage of this on a meme site. I also support it in an odd way but I do not know why. Anyways ... unfun fact: did you know that 9/11 also affected New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Virginia, & Connecticut? I honestly feel mildly upset that hardly anyone pays attention to that.
There is a place south of my hometown St Mary’s PA called Somerset County where flight 93 crashed. You’re right about how no one else pays attention to the other states. The twin towers killed many, but flight 93 is forgotten.
