September 11, 2001 is a date we will always remember where we were when our country was attacked. Kay C. James with The Heritage Foundation recounts the timeline:
It was 8:46 a.m. when hijackers steered American Airlines Flight 11 into 1 World Trade Center; 9:03 a.m. when they crashed United Flight 175 into 2 World Trade Center; 9:37 a.m. when the terrorists steered American Airlines Flight 77 into the Pentagon; and 10:03 a.m. when, after learning of the other attacks, the passengers on United Flight 93 saved countless lives by launching a counterattack against the hijackers, resulting in the plane crashing into an empty field near Shanksville, PA.
As the day went from bad to worse, the First Responders (Fire Fighters, Police and civilians) braved hell to save those they could and lost their lives in the process.
Today we thank God for those brave souls: our brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, fathers, mothers, and dear friends. Today we pray to God for peace in our country. We pray as a FREE people, as Americans for the United States of America, One Great Nation Under God.
