9/11 10 Year Anniversary

As you probably know, last Sunday was 11th September, 2011, 10 years since two airplanes were hijacked and smashed into the WTC (World Trading Centre) in New York. Roughly 3,000 people died that day.

I’m writing this post, devoted to those who died. The innocent civilians who were in WTC that day, probably some with families, and, especially the fire-men and the police who put in so much effort and their time into the rescue and clean-up oporations. Also, those service men who died.

My heart also goes out to the marines who died in the pentagon, where the third hijacked plane crashed.

And no-one can even forget those people who were on the plane and lost their lives.

To those people who lost friends, family and loved ones in the tragedy. I’m truly sorry.

Now, I was only 4 when this happened. My mum told me that my Uncle Michael was in America at the time, having conferences in different parts of America. She was worried, but soon we found out that his plane had been grounded and he had not been harmed.

It’s weird for me to think that one of my family was there on that day. It’s weird to think that it could’ve been him on board.

  1. It was devastating, but the paramedics helped immensely.

  2. My heart goes out to everyone who was effected by the terrorist attacks on September 11th, 2001. All those who lost a wife, husband, mother, father, brother, sister. To all those who lost an aunt or uncle, cousin, grandmother or grandfather, a friend. To those who died that day. To those whose bodies were never found. To every single one of the operators who helped people through when people called 911, begging for help. That they have the courage to endure the echoing screams of terror that people had when they called, when they were dying. But most of all, my heart goes out to all of the EMT’s, paramedics, hospitals, doctors, firefighters, policemen, and everyone that gave and risked their lives to help saved people’s lives.

    Here we are, 10 years later. God has risen up something that was intended it for evil and made it into something good.

    I’m sure you will never forget where you were on 9/11, what you were doing, the voices you heard, the stories you were told. Maybe even the clothes you were wearing.
