On September 11th 2001, 4 commercial jets were hijacked by terrorists in one of the most deadly terrorist attacks to ever take place on American soil. I still remember exactly what I was doing when that took place. I was a sophomore in high school and had been sentenced to in school suspension for not showing up to class. As I walked into the room, the television in the upper corner was set to the news. One plane had already crashed into, and we watched along with the rest of the nation as a second plane flew into the World Trade Centers in New York City. A third plane flew into the Pentagon in Washington DC. As the horror took over our senses, we found out that the fourth plane had been retaken by the passengers and crashed in a field in Pennsylvania. If they had not crashed the plane, it would have been crashed into the White House. At that crash site, is now a memorial dedicated to them.
