    9-11-01 … A Day We Will Never Forget

    Patriot Day honors the memory of those who were killed in the September 11 attacks

    On September 11, 2001, the world witnessed a tragedy that forever changed the course of history. The terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center in New York City, the Pentagon in Washington, D.C., and the failed hijacking of United Airlines Flight 93, left an indelible mark on the hearts and minds of people across the globe. On the 22nd anniversary of 9-11, we remember and honor those who lost their lives, those who survived, and the countless heroes who risked everything to save others.

    The Day That Shook the World

    In the face of unimaginable tragedy, the resilience of the human spirit shines through.

    The morning of September 11, 2001, started like any other ordinary day. People went about their daily routines, unaware of the impending horror that awaited them. Suddenly, the world was thrust into chaos as hijacked airplanes were flown into the Twin Towers, causing them to collapse. The Pentagon, a symbol of American strength, was also targeted, and brave passengers on Flight 93 prevented further devastation by overpowering the hijackers and crashing the plane in Pennsylvania.

Their memories live on in the hearts of their loved ones and in the collective consciousness of a nation that refuses to forget.
