20 years ago on Tuesday, September 11, 2001 the world changed
NYC skyline as it once was, before . . .
Just like this morning, it was a beautiful September day when a Boeing 767, American Airlines Flight 11, struck the North tower of the World Trade Center at the 80th floor. Scarcely 18 minutes later, a second Boeing 676, United Airlines Flight 175 crashed into the South tower near the 60th floor. 

American Airlines Flight 77 circled over downtown Washington, D.C., before crashing into the west side of the Pentagon military headquarters at 9:45 a.m. United Flight 93 was hijacked 40 minutes after leaving Newark Liberty International Airport, NJ crashing in a rural field near Shanksville in western Pennsylvania at 10:10 a.m.

We should never forget the attacks and the 2,996 brave people who died in the aftermath.
