In the article, “Remembering 9/11, Twenty Years Later” I learned that there was an attack towards the U.S. On this day, September 11, 2001 4 planes were hijacked by 14 members of the terrorist group al-Qaeda. This resulted in 2 planes crashing into the Twin Towers of the World Trade center. One of the other planes had crashed into the Pentagon in Washington D.C. The last plane was also headed towards Washington D.C. but crashed into a field in Pennsylvania because the passengers fought back.
This was a devastating day in which more than 3,000 people had died. It’s sad to know that many people knew that they were going to die because of the damage caused to the building. There was so much damage caused not only two those two buildings but other buildings and vehicles in that area.
