The article “Remembering 9/11, Twenty Years later” gives a quick summary about the events of 9/11 and discusses the ways of how New York honors those who lost their lives that day. On the morning of September 11th, terrorist group Al-Qaeda hijacked four commercial jets. Two of these jets crashed into the World Trade Center, more commonly known as the twin towers. The third jet crashed into the Pentagon, located in Washington D.C. and the fourth jet didn’t reach its destination in Washington because passengers fought back. Therefore, it crashed into a field in Pennsylvania. Due to these attacks, over 3,000 people sadly lost their lives but each and every one of those lives aren’t forgotten. The people of New York built a memorial and a museum to honor the victims of the attacks. Services will be held in New York one of which is called “Tribute in light” which is a memorial that will be held in the evening. In the museums, a variety of ways will be provided to the visitors to “never forget” the events that occurred.
I believe that It is very admirable of New York to hold events and such to honor those who unfortunately passed away on 9/11. It’s important that these people are forever remembered and that what occurred is never forgotten because not only was it a tragic day, it was also a day that brought America together. This event impacted many people in a huge and tragic way but it also shows that we are strong and that we can get through anything.
